Last Updated by Dale Fisher on

Sesame Workshop, the non-profit educational organization behind Sesame Street, recently announced a rich new phase of the autism initiative, Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children, welcoming Julia, a Muppet with autism, signaling a strong, continuing commitment to the autism community. Julia, introduced last year in digital form, comes to life as a Muppet in addition to a broad release of resources designed to serve autistic children and their families and increase awareness and understanding of autism.

"Meet Julia" episode of Sesame Street premieres Monday, April 10 at 9:30 a.m. on Nine PBS.


Meet Julia, the newest friend on Sesame Street. Julia has autism. She’s also a really good singer and can remember all the words to lots of songs…like the favorite Sesame Street song, “Sunny Days”. Abby’s happy to join in!
