Sesame Street – Meet Julia

Sesame Street has a new kid on the block – meet Julia! Julia is smiley, curious, and loves to play. She also has Autism. Kids can learn more about autism and how it presents in children, and what to do when someone on the autism spectrum doesn't react in the way they may expect. We may play differently, but that's what makes it fun to play together!

In October 2015, Sesame Workshop launched Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children. This year, on April 10th, a very special episode of Sesame Street, 'Meet Julia,' will debut on both HBO and PBS (and will be available on YouTube thereafter). Julia, the four-year-old Muppet with autism will come to life, playing with Elmo, Abby, and the rest of the gang on Sesame Street!
