COMING HOME: Military Families Cope with Change

This Sesame Workshop special tells the stories of service members returning home with injuries, and the struggles their families face on the path to finding a "new normal.” Thursday, April 9th at 8:30 p.m. on KUAT6 and HD.

This 30-minute primetime special, presented by Sesame Workshop and featuring Queen Latifah and John Mayer, tells the stories of service members returning home with injuries—both visible and invisible—and explores the heroic struggles their families face on the path to finding a "new normal." With help from Elmo, Rosita and their Sesame Street friends, "Coming Home" gives voice to the children as they play a central role in the family's adjustment process, and encourages them to be what they are: kids.
