By now, I am sure that you have heard all about Julia the Muppet who has Autism being the newest character to join the Sesame Street crew. Julia made her debut on an episode of Sesame Street recently with a primary focus of bringing awareness and knowledge about #Autism.
Julia, the 4-year old, red-haired Mupphet with Autism is scheduled to be included this Fall in the Sesame Street cast of characters that can be found interacting with children and families vacationing at Beaches Resorts in Jamaica and Turks & Caicos! Beaches is also now home to the #Caribbean’s first Autism-Friendly Kids Camps! Beaches is the first resort company in the world to complete the rigorous IBCCES (The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards) training and Autism Certification!
In a press release we received 4/11/2017, #BeachesResorts announced the following statement:
“Sesame Workshop debuted Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children in 2015 to help increase awareness and understanding of autism. Julia, introduced last year in digital form, now comes to life as a Muppet on a special Sesame Street episode. Other Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children resources include digital videos, books, and e-books, available in both English and Spanish. For more information, please visit sesamestreet.org/autism.
As part of Beaches Resorts’ brand-wide efforts to increase awareness of autism, staff underwent initial training with “Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children“ resources. Complementing these efforts and continuing its commitment to create memorable experiences for all families, Beaches Resorts has partnered with The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES), a global leader in training and certification programs, created to meet the training needs of professionals who work with individuals with special needs and cognitive disorders.
Through the partnership, which is ongoing and provides intensive training for team members, each of the resorts’ Kids Camps and its early childcare staff have earned the distinction of Certified Autism Centers, ensuring team members have the requisite knowledge, skills, temperament and expertise to cater to all children. As the first Caribbean resort company to complete the rigorous IBCCES training and certification, Beaches Resorts has demonstrated it provides a safe, fun and comfortable experience for families with children with autism and other special needs so that all families may enjoy the resort company’s award-winning experience.”
