Sesame Street

Sesame Street Introduces Julia

For the first time in a decade, the classic children's television show Sesame Street is introducing a new Muppet.

Her name is Julia. She's a shy and winsome 4-year-old, with striking red hair and green eyes. Julia likes to paint and pick flowers. When Julia speaks, she often echoes what she's just heard her friends Abby and Elmo say. Julia has autism.

Learn about the new character and the autism resources put together by Sesame Street here.
