Primary Speaker name:
Sesame Workshop is the nonprofit global organization whose mission is to help all children become smarter, stronger, and kinder. Using the power of our brand along with our trusted Muppets, we create free resources that celebrate the uniqueness of every child while building resilience to confront any challenges that may come their way. Together, we can help all children thrive by creating circles of cares through our resources. Some key programs include Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children, an initiative that brings understanding about autism along with Julia, a 4-year-old autistic Muppet, and her family fostering connections between the neurodivergent and neurotypical communities. Additionally, our program Sesame Street in Communities offers multiple resources to help foster nurturing connections, tackling the most difficult challenges facing children and families today.
Participating in this session will allow participants to:
- Use See Amazing in All Children resources facilitate understanding of autism and creating compassion and empathy for making connections
- Use Sesame Street in Communities to tackle traumatic experiences while building resilience and build circles of care
