Sesame Street’s Nationwide Initiative to Help People See Amazing in All Children

Beloved children’s television program, Sesame Street has launched a wonderful new initiative, See Amazing in All Children. Developed with input from parents, autism service providers, and people with autism, See Amazing fosters an affirming narrative around autism for all families and kids.

The initiative includes a website packed full of free resources and tips to help parents educate their kids about autism, and support families to accomplish everyday activities. Visit the website here to click through the interactive story of Elmo, Abby and Julia, to download daily routine cards, or to watch some See Amazing videos.

An exciting part of the See Amazing initiative was the introduction of a new friend to the Sesame Street cast, Julia, who has austism. Together the furry Muppet friends go on daily adventures to help children and the adults in their lives reach their highest potential. Grover and the gang will tackle a variety of topics that face children in the areas of health and well-being, school readiness, and emotional well-being. Some of the content and topics presented are more sensitive, so you should preview these videos before sharing with a child. You can see more on the Sesame Street in Communities YouTube channel.
