Newsy Project

The video that I’m using for my NEWSY project is about Sesame Street’s newest Muppet  named Julia, who has autism. The video Newest ‘Sesame Street’ Addition Might Look Familiar explains how Sesame Streets newest addition helps children with understanding diversity, specifically those who are disabled.

This story really hits home to me because my sister is on the autism spectrum, and I adore how a children’s show, which is a learning center for our kids, promotes inclusiveness for all children.

There is more to learn about Julia from other resources besides what NEWSY suggests, but I am excited to see what her character is all about and the reactions from children audiences.

    I think this is a nice positive story to do your project in. I also think it’s amazing that children shows are finally shining light on what it’s like to be autistic.
