Choosing to Be a Good Friend Video

Neurodiversity is a fact, but providing social support for neuromajority students to foster a culture of acceptance is a choice. Choosing to Be a Good Friend is an award-winning short documentary film featuring eight neurodivergent students, six of whom tell their own stories of living with autism. Three other friends and siblings offer their perspectives. All 12-16 year-old participants use their own language, which makes these personal accounts authentic platforms on which to build rich discussions about neurodiversity, bullying, and social emotional expression with other middle school students. Note that because one of the students in the film refers indirectly to suicidal ideation from 17:54-18:49, some content might not be suitable for children under age 12. There is a circle in the progress bar denoting this as a warning. Subtitles accessible by mousing over the CC icon and clicking Enable captions.

Great for staff in-services, community presentations, and introducing extended family members to neurodiversity.
