Meet Julia, Sesame Street’s new character with autism 

As part of a new campaign called Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children, the long-running children’s show introduced a Julia, a girl living with autism, in an online storybook. In the book, Elmo teaches Abby about Julia and autism. This story is just one part of the Sesame Street initiative to fight autism stigma.

I’m tearing up because I didn’t have any autistic representation growing up, let alone representation of autistic girls.
