Following the television debut of Julia, a new Sesame Street Muppet with autism, Beaches Resorts has announced the walkaround character’s arrival to its resorts in Jamaica and Turks & Caicos, beginning in the fall. The debut also continues Beaches Resorts’ partnership with Sesame Workshop, the non-profit educational organization behind Sesame Street, and expands the resort company’s exclusive Beaches Resorts Caribbean Adventure with Sesame Street program, now in its 13th year.
“We created Beaches Resorts as a concept for everyone and it’s our privilege, particularly during Autism Awareness Month, to announce the addition of Julia this Fall as part of our exclusive relationship with Sesame Workshop,” said Adam Stewart, CEO of Beaches Resorts.” “As a resort company that also celebrates that children have a remarkable ability to see amazing in all people, we are excited to introduce more inclusive programming for families with children on the spectrum of which Julia will play a part in,” he concluded.
A new activity – Amazing Art with Julia – will be introduced with the new character. In this activity, Julia will highlight how people can express themselves through art; using a range of material, children will have the opportunity to explore, experiment and create in an open-ended art activity.
