"As a parent of two kids with autism, I'm thrilled that there's finally a character with autism on Sesame Street", Rosner said.
Julia, a 4-year-old female muppet, first appeared online and in printed materials.
The new character will make her debut on the show in April, reported Huffington Post.
Jeanette Betancourt, Sesame Workshop's senior VP of USA social impact, said families of children with autism have asked the show to address the issue for years now. Stacey Gordon, the mother of a son with autism, will be the puppeteer for Julia.
CBS 58 was joined in the studio this afternoon by Emily Levine, the Executive Director at the Autism Society.
"It's tricky because autism is not one thing, because it is different for every single person who has autism", "Sesame" writer Christine Ferraro told Stahl.

"We heard a call to use our expertise and characters to build a bridge between the autism and neurotypical communities", Betancourt said.
"The thing Sesame Street has done so great over the years is to show the differences of all of us", said Jason.
"Had my son's friends been exposed to his behaviors through something that they had seen on TV before they experienced them in the classroom, they might not have been frightened", she told 60 Minutes.
Later, when a group of children are playing tag, Julia starts jumping up and down with excitement.
Big Bird met his new neighbor on 60 Minutes last night: Julia, a yellow puppet with orange hair who didn't greet him back. "I would like her to be just Julia". "There is an expression that goes, 'If you've met one person with autism, you've met one person with autism'".
But maybe Julia said it best when Stahl asked if she was enjoying her new friends.
