About This Webinar:

Children experience the world differently, and those differences can be greater for children with autism and other developmental disabilities. Military life comes with its own set of unique challenges, which can impact how children experience the world. The understanding and support of early childhood professionals can strengthen the skills of children with autism and increase the capacity of their families.

In this 90-minute webinar, Tara Wright, Professional Development Manager with Sesame Workshop, shares the Sesame Street and Autism and Sesame Street for Military Families initiatives, along with resources within these initiatives for professionals, young children, and their families.  She also  discusses strategies that help families build resilience and optimism.

This event is hosted by the Family Development-Early Intervention concentration area of OneOp.


Tara Wright serves as Professional Development Manager in the U.S. Social Impact department at Sesame Workshop. She is responsible for creating multimedia training and Implementation experiences for various Sesame Workshop initiatives, sharing recommended practices, and equipping providers across the nation with tools and resources to better serve families and their young children.

Prior to joining Sesame Workshop, Ms. Wright was on the Public Affairs team at the University of Oklahoma. She also has worked as a graphic designer, and she owns a small creative business on the side. Ms. Wright holds a bachelor of Advertising from the Gaylord College of Journalism at the University of Oklahoma. She is also a new mom and a new military (Marine) wife. Oorah!
