Elmo, Abby and Alan play hair salon and pretend to be hair stylists to help Julia feel less scared about getting a haircut.

Elmo, Abby Cadabby, and Alan help Julia, Sesame Street’s first muppet on the autism spectrum, feel less scared about getting a haircut by playing ‘hair salon’ and pretending to be hair stylists. The segment was created in response to a need families have expressed for materials tackling common experiences like haircuts that can pose challenges for children with autism. Sesame Street Julia's Haircut airs Wednesday, July 1 at 11 a.m. on WXXI-TV.

This episode of Sesame Street is part of Move to Include, a partnership between WXXI and the Golisano Foundation designed to promote inclusion for people with intellectual and physical disabilities. This Move to Include model expands nationally this year to five additional communities with support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a private corporation funded by the American people.
