Ready to make friends with a new resident in your neighborhood, the neighborhood of “Sesame Street” of course 🙂 You get the chance to next month, when the children’s T-V show introduces us to Julia.
Julia is a Muppet with red hair, green eyes and autism. But to the bevy of puppets on the show, she’s just one of the gang. In one episode, she plays a game with Oscar, Abby and Grover and is praised for being “really good at finding shapes.
Julia’s existence is part of an effort by Sesame Workshop called ”Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children.“
