Sesame Street has taken a giant leap forward with the announcement that it plan to introduce a character with autism. 

The character's name is Julia, and she's a little girl with a toy rabbit, bright orange hair and autism. 

She is set to make her debut in April, in a programme which will show Big Bird and the other characters play a new game and promote a message of understanding and acceptance for those with autism. 

TV channels PBS and HBO are set to air the episode.
