Film Screening: “Choosing to Be a Good Friend”

March 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join the Autism Society of Greater Wisconsin –  Autism Society of the Fox Valley and Good Friend, Inc. at the Offsite Collaboration Center-Neenah (3rd floor) for a film screening and discussion about nurturing neurodiversity and acceptance in middle school students.

About the film:
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.
