Sesame Street new character Julia - Autism

Sesame Street’s newest character Julia has autism.

On Wednesday, Sesame Street announced their new initiative, Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children, to help families and young children develop an understanding and build an awareness around autism.

In doing so, they’ve introduced Julia, their very first character with autism.

Julia is Elmo and Abby Cadabby‘s new friend featured in the storybook, “We’re Amazing, 1, 2, 3.”

Inside the book, the trio learns how to play together, appreciate each other’s differences, and they celebrate their commonalities.

Kudos to Sesame Street! This is awesome.
