The people of Sesame Street have been teaching us about the world and the people who live in it for years.  They have a way of explaining the different people in the world and all of the wonderfully special things about them so it only makes sense that they would tackle the Autism spectrum.  This is Julia, big Gerd’s new friend and although she doesn’t always play the same way as some other people, she is special and fun and a great friend.  I love that they tackle issues like this on Sesame Street, the producers consulted with several organization who support the autistic but realize that not everyone with autism behaves the same way because the spectrum is so broad.  Here is a little into video to Julia who will premier on the show this season.
