I grew up on Sesame Street and actually learned from the show started by Jim Henson. We’ve come to love all the great muppets such as Ernie and Bert, To Big Bird, Cookie Monster and Kermit The Frog. Now they are getting ready to introduce a new cast member. Julia is her name and she has Autism. Julia’s puppeteer, Stacey Gordon, has a son with autism. She wishes Julia had been around years ago when he was “Sesame Street” age. The show’s creators hope that children understand other children they meet on the playground and in life who have autism. This holds a special place in my heart, as I have a nephew with autism and he has a hard time with other children understanding what he is going through every day.
