‘Sesame Street’ Welcomes Autistic Muppet, Julia
20 Mar 2017
On April 10, HBO and PBS will air a very special episode of the legendary childrens’ educational program, “Sesame Street.” In “Meet Julia,” a 4-year-old autistic girl named Julia will be introduced to the world, marking an important milestone for the inclusion and understanding of autism.
This is a great opportunity for kids and adults, alike, to gain an understanding of some of their neighbors, classmates and co-workers. Autism is a challenging subject to broach, so we praise those who produce “Sesame Street” for bringing Julia to the neighborhood, ushering-in a new era in educational programming.
