Sesame Street in Communities

“One of the best parts of my job is seeing the reaction of the community to my work. In November, Julia rode the Sesame Street float at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, dressed in her winter coat and her noise-cancelling headphones. I was delighted to see parents posting photos of their young kids at events wearing their own headphones. And autistic adults commenting that they also wear headphones like Julia’s! One of my favorite things about Julia is that she allows more kids and adults to see themselves represented and included as one of the gang on Sesame Street. There’s room for everyone on our street!”
