MAK­ING WAVES ‘ Se­same Street’ is adding a new char­ac­ter to its tele­vi­sion lineup with Ju­lia, a Mup­pet with autism. Scott Bade­sch, pres­i­dent and CEO of the Autism So­ci­ety, told the As­so­ci­ated Press, “When you can have a char­ac­ter that shows what autism is, it will help ev­ery­one who watches ‘ Se­same Street’ have a re­ally good ap­pre­ci­a­tion of what autism is, in a pos­i­tive way.”
