More from Inside Edition: http://bit.ly/2bF0iuC Julia, the red-haired, green-eyed new addition to "Sesame Street" has autism, and is part of the children's show's push for inclusivity. The show says families affected by autism have appealed to "Sesame Street" for years to address the condition. "Meet Julia" airs on April 10 when Julia is introduced to Big Bird. She's invited to play a game with fellow Muppets where they must point out different shapes. InsideEdition.com's Keleigh Nealon (https://twitter.com/KeleighNealon) has more.
