“The response from the autism community to See Amazing in All Children has been extraordinary, and we are committed to continuing our efforts to promote understanding and acceptance of autism, as part of our mission of helping all children grow smarter, stronger, and kinder,” Sherrie Westin, Executive Vice President of Global Impact and Philanthropy with Sesame Workshop, said in a statement.
