Sesame Street: Julia’s birthday

sesamestreet.org

Today it is Julia’s birthday.

The wonderful puppet from sesame street is having a birthday today and I wanted to take this opportunity to write a little thank you note to @sesamestreet.

It is wonderful to have the autistic community represented by such a thoughtful, kind and loving character like Julia.

My daughter was able to see similarities between herself and Julia, these similarities were something my mermaid was proud of. “I’m like Julia too” she would randomly say whilst watching her on the show.

What I love also is how Sesame street had the other characters, that we know and love, approach and play with Julia. It was sensitively written and definitely a platform for learning for autistic children and Neurotypical children alike.

So, happy birthday Julia!

Hugs x
