A Muppet, with autism, making debut on Sesame Street
A new friend is coming to Sesame Street, a 4-year-old girl named Julia. She has red hair, loves her toy bunny and can come across as shy. She also has autism.
Some viewers of the beloved children’s television program might recognize Julia from her introduction two years ago in an online storybook. In April, Julia will make the leap into live-action when she becomes the newest Muppet to join Sesame Street, as revealed in a sneak preview Sunday night on “60 Minutes.”
