Sesame Street is introducing a new character named Julia. She's young girl with orange hair, a love for her toy rabbit and she has autism.

Julia is currently part of Sesame Street digital and printed storybooks. She will make her TV debut in April where you'll see her often. He first episode will explore what autism looks like. For example, when she first meets Big Bird she ignores him and continues what she's doing because "sometimes it just takes her a little longer to do things," they explain.
