Sesame Street created a new storybook called Circle of Friends featuring Julia! On the first day of summer camp, Julia stands up for another camper with autism who is being bullied, and the two become friends. Children with autism are five times more likely to be bullied than their neurotypical peers; Circle of Friends aims to prevent bullying by fostering empathy and compassion.
The Autism Society of Nebraska has copies of the new book in each of our support network cities to share.
