Meet The New Kid On ‘Sesame Street’: Julia, A Muppet With Autism.

“Sesame Street” just got a whole lot broader with its newest neighbor: Julia, a Muppet with autism.

She’s making her TV debut surrounded by everybody’s favorite neighborhood gang on HBO and PBS in April.

The show’s creators hope the new character will help children better understand playmates who have autism, which is affecting more and more American kids. Children with autism will also have a Muppet they can identify with.
