Lesson Introducing the Concept of Neurodiversity

A lesson plan, titled “Neurodiversity: Negotiating the World … Differently,” was created for PBS POV to help students in grades 9–12 better understand the experiences of individuals with autism and to introduce them to the concept of neurodiversity. The single-period lesson provides reflection and discussion prompts, and incorporates clips from the 2013 film Neurotypical, which explores behavioral and perceptual differences associated with autism. One of the lesson’s objectives is to help students recognize and accept that all people view and engage with the world differently.

Plus: An excellent children’s book on neuroplasticity is Your Fantastic Elastic Brain by JoAnn Deak (Little Pickle Press, 2010).
