Sesame Street’s “See Amazing in all Children” Initiative
Sesame Street welcomed a new muppet to their neighborhood this year as part of their “See Amazing in all Children” initiative. Julia, a four-year-old muppet with autism, “is a natural extension to Sesame Street’s long-standing message that we are all different but the same.” In addition to the role Julia will play on the show, online resources are available for families and providers to increase acceptance and reduce the isolation and stigma experienced by children and families impacted by autism. Online resources include daily routine cards, tips and suggestions for supporting siblings and talking with peers, videos, e-books and books. Developed for children, families, caregivers, and childcare providers, resources are available in both English and Spanish. Check out this great new resource by visiting the Sesame Street “See Amazing in All Children” webpages.
