Jarrod Fairclough – Last month Sesame Workshop announced the arrival of Julia, a Muppet with autism, who would be joining the show, educating children on just what autism might look like, and that autistic people are no different to everyone else. It’s a great initiative, and yesterday the world was introduced to her! In order to make sure everyone was able to view this landmark episode, Sesame Street have uploaded it to their YouTube page, which you can view below! PS – How nice is it to hear Caroll Spinney’s Big Bird again!
As well as the episode, be sure to watch this great behind the scenes clip, which chronicles the creation of Julia, as well as Muppet performer Stacey Gordan’s audition.
