Welcome to the Voices of ASD Video Library, a collection of videos that explore the lives of individuals with ASD, with a focus on first person accounts and an exploration of what it means to live with ASD. Our goal is to deepen understanding among individuals with ASD, their families, and communities through the sharing of personal stories. This is a project of the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Clinic of JFK Partners, a University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities. Please check back from time to time as more videos will be added.
Voices of Adults with ASD
This video profiles four adults living with autism as they share their personal stories including their challenges, strengths, advice and hopes/beliefs about the future.
Young Adults with ASD talk about Life Beyond High School
This video depicts a conversation between two young adults with ASD as they discuss their transition from high school, as well as topics such as gender and sexuality, relationships and what has helped them over the years. There is a “then and now” component to the film, as the two young people first met when they were teenagers and were reunited for making of the film.
