Meet Julia! The first new character to move to “Sesame Street” in a decade, Julia has autism. Julia, who loves art but is a little shy, will become friends with Elmo and Abby Cadabby. She is part of Sesame’s new initiative, “See Amazing in All Children,” which aims to help all children be smarter, stronger and kinder. She’s already been featured in a Sesame storybook and other online resources, but she will debut on “Sesame Street” at 9:30 am CT Monday, April 10!
