Meet Julia - Sesame Street's newest muppet with autism


'Sesame Street' is introducing Julia, their newest muppet in April this year. Julia is a 4-year-old with blazing red hair, bright green eyes, and autism. She's been in Sesame Workshop print and digital illustrations for more than a year, and makes her TV debut April 10 on both PBS and HBO. The show has been a favourite for almost 50 years and is all set to step up awareness about autism through the addition on the new character. Stacey Gordon, a puppeteer says she has been preparing for Julia for her whole life. She has a son who has high-functioning autism and wants to do her best to bring Julia to the world in the best light possible

Some sick people in the comments. You can't have that conservative mentality where "if it has nothing to do with me, then I don't want to see it." Calm down a little bit. You don't even understand how included kids with autism or aspergers might feel. You act like watching this muppet will turn your kids into an autistic child... Some many intolerant assholes in here that can't stand diversity in the slightest bit.

I don't think muppets will ever be a good show for kids anymore in the future if they keep pushing for representation of agendas that aren't good for kids. Not letting my kids watch muppets ever.

First Elmo tells your children to get the vaccines that cause their autism, then they create an autistic muppet, They are totally trying to normalize autism this is sickening. If I did watch Sesame Street I would boycott it immediately.

holy fuck some of you people are fuckin sick. i think its a good idea and no not all autists throw tantrums and as far as the anti social part well look at yourselves and think if someone treated you that way and then tell me you wouldn't be antifuckinsocial as well. no disability isn't natural or normal but compassion understanding and fuckin tolerance should be. oh and imma go on a limb and assume most of you are christians since your demographic are some of the most outright rude pretentious and egotistical assholes out their with a constant stick up your fuckin asses. oh didn't like me prejudging you then how bout you stop assuming all autistics have tantrums or are stupid.

It doesn't get any more retarded than this. I doubt they will show her sitting in the corner screaming her lungs out for hours. Or attacking the other muppets in an autistic fueled rage. Quit promoting retardation as normal, and quit forcing retards into the classroom with normal kids.

Creamy GoodnessCreamy Goodness (1 month ago)
Why are a bunch of 4chan rejects on YouTube videos about sesame street. Don't they have something better to do, like wank over trump or something?

it's called ASD - autism spectrum disorder - because some people have it better than others. maybe Julia just happens to be one of the kids who got lucky; she's relatively high functioning on the spectrum 🙂

I saw the whole "60 Minutes" segment about Julia. It did make me choke up. I have a niece on the spectrum. The moment when they show Big Bird introducing himself to Julia and she doesn't acknowledge him, made me think of my niece. She used to be the same way. She's come so far and she is an amazing kid.
