This week Sesame Street introduced their first autistic character – a puppet named Julia. Julia is the first new Muppet since Abby Cadabby appeared in 2006. The puppeteer who plays Julia is a mom of a child on the autism spectrum.

I love Julia, as she is just like myself as a child! I have seen the episode; it is quite accurate to autism. I love that the episode accepts and even embraces autism, and stims like happy flapping.
