What will Sesame Street say about its new character who has autism, to explain to its viewers?

Sesame Street will show Elmo introducing new character, Julia, who has autism, to Big Bird. Julia will be shown to be a bit hesitant in shaking Big Bird's hand (wing), but Elmo will tell Big Bird that Julia has autism and so "sometimes it takes her a little longer to do things". The puppet Julia has been designed with eyes which give her an intense look, the designer told CBS's 60 Minutes, and has short hair which won't get in her eyes or mouth. She also has a different set of eyes which she can close when she needs time to calm down.
