Choosing To Be A Good Friend

In the spirit of creating "nothing about us without us," director Denise Schamens puts eight neurodivergent students at the center of this autism acceptance film, six of whom tell their own stories of living with autism. Three other friends and siblings offer their perspectives. All 12- to 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.

Purchasing this item gives the user unlimited streaming access to the Choosing to Be a Good Friend video in English for one week through their account. It does not include course materials.

We ALL Fit

Students with special education needs, including those on the autism spectrum, are increasingly included by school districts in general classrooms, but sometimes without social support for neuro-majority students. "We ALL Fit" is a peer sensitivity film that explains autism in elementary school students using positive, developmentally-appropriate, and accurate language and imagery to foster healthy social interactions between neurodiverse children and faculty. All viewers learn tools for advocacy, bullying prevention, and disability harassment correction in a fun, accessible way.

Following the 16-minute film there's a 4-minute music video by The Figureheads, which provides a perfect movement break.

Purchasing this item gives the user unlimited streaming access to the We ALL Fit Video in both English and Spanish for one week through their account. It does not include course materials.
