For 45 seasons and counting, "Sesame Street" has been an integral part of teaching little kids about the world around them.
And that's continuing with the addition of the show's newest member — Julia, the first character with autism.
Julia was part of the "Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children" rollout. The campaign aims to break the stigma of autism and help kids find common ground despite the potential barriers in communication.
