Sesame Street recently launched a new initiative aimed at communities with young children with autism spectrum disorder. Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children was developed with input from parents, people who serve the autism community, and people with autism. This new initiative offers families ways to overcome common challenges and simplify everyday activities. At the same time, the project fosters an affirming narrative around autism for all families and kids.
