Sesame Street and Autism


lead_960-1.jpgThe latest Sesame Street initiative—Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children introduces the program’s first autistic Muppet, Julia, as part of an effort to teach kids about autism. It’s pretty great.

I wrote about it for the Atlantic.

  1. I’m really interested to see what you make of this from the perspective of a parent who’s seen so much. I never watched the show (it didn’t air in our market when I was the right age) and our girls didn’t see too much of it, but it obviously has a huge cultural impact. And even I can sing “One of these things is not like the other.”
