Dr. Wonder's Workshop is an American Christian children's show targeted largely to a deaf/hard-of-hearing populace, and airs nationally on the Smile of a Child network during the week, and on TBN Saturday mornings as part of their Smile of a Child block. A few local independent stations also air the show as well.

The main characters are all deaf, and speak in American Sign Language (ASL). For non-deaf viewers, the show is done with voiceover narration, and a Spanish-language closed-captioning is also provided as well as English closed-captioning by the National Captioning Institute.[1] The show is produced by Silent Blessings/Deaf Ministries, based in Indianapolis, Indiana.[2]
