Sesame Street will be introducing a new character to the show in April.  Her name is Julia, and she has autism.  Julia will make her big debut in a scene with Elmo and Abby Cadabby as they introduce her to Big Bird.  Elmo and Abby explain to Big Bird that Julia has autism and “sometimes it takes her a little longer to do things.”  Personally, I think this is a great way to introduce kids to autism and show them how to deal with those situations.
