Meet Julia! Julia is the latest addition to Sesame Street.
She's 4-years-old with red hair, and green eyes. But there's something extra special about Julia; she has autism.
Julia represents the thousands of children in the U.S. who are on the autism spectrum. Just like every person on the autism spectrum, Julia has unique abilities and challenges.
Her puppeteer is a woman who is the mother of an autistic son and has counseled others in the realm.
Julia makes her debut on April 10 on PBS!
