Take a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the creation of Julia, a new Muppet friend with autism coming to life on Sesame Street. Julia is part of Sesame Street's autism initiative, "See Amazing in All Children", which aims to increase understanding around autism—and provides tools for families of children with autism to overcome everyday challenges. "See Amazing in All Children" helps children and families see commonalities instead of differences and celebrates the amazing in all children.
Sesame Street in Communities brings free video content of everyone's favorite, furry Muppet friends as they help children and the adults in their lives reach their highest potential. Grover and the gang will tackle a variety of topics that face children in the areas of health and well-being, school readiness, and emotional well-being. Some of the content and topics presented are more sensitive, so you should preview these videos before sharing with a child.
