I'm a 21 year old autistic male and I can understand what his diagnosis was. This graduation video was the BEST I've seen. Everyone respected, did Jazz hands instead of clapping (great thing), and they gave him sour patch kids! To be honest, he earned those for graduating.Congrats, Jack! (Recommended Video in January 2020)

I live in my Carmel. Wowza
Perhaps you want to consider giving a noise cancelling ear thingy if he really hates noise that much. That's what I would give to him.
We graduated in alphabetical order at my school. Unbeknownst to me for most of my four years of high school, there was another student that shared my name, Brian Kessler. Therefore, we were assigned to sit next to each other. The other Brian had severe Down Syndrome, was nonverbal, and couldn't function without prompting.I had a lot of stress that night. My father did not come, because he was on suicide watch in a mental hospital. My grandmother and great aunt flew in from Puerto Rico. The principal literally yelled at me for wearing jeans and a Kramer-from-Seinfeld-style shirt underneath my robe, and almost didn't let me graduate.This kid behind us kept jabbing the other Brian in the back, and making mocking sounds. Jeering, grunting, just low enough to not be heard by faculty or family in the audience. I hated school, I hated being bullied for four years, I hated just having been bullied by the principal on my last night in that stupid school, and I was on the verge of losing it.I turned around in my seat, glared at the bully, and said "If you don't knock it off, then I am going to stand up right now and yell at you in front of everyone. The both of us will get kicked out. But when I leave, my family will understand why I did it, and have no problem. Will yours?"A concerned girl next to him said "You better stop. I think he's serious." The bully never bothered the other Brian after that.17 years later I ended up working in the same place as the "bully." I wouldn't necessarily call him a bully now, because people are capable of growing up in 17 years time. We don't work around each other that often, and when we do, we don't say much to each other. But I always remember that graduation night.
Awkward but yet very nice and respectful
That was actually sweet of him so it wouldn't bother him
Isn’t that the kid who was on doctor Phil for killing his mother?
I’m not crying.... YOU’RE CRYING.
He didn't say none about a blow horn
The teacher really understands him that he gave a pack of sour patch kids to him. :))
Respect! All the way around... respect.
If only engineers could invent a device for helping such kids. Something to put in ears cancelling noise. We could call it noise cancelling earphones or smth. I can only hope such a day will come.
I have autism myself and i would not expect people to give me any special treatment because of my autism. My parents raised me to man up and accept that the world doesn't give a shit about my handicap. It's shit like this that ensures that this kid lives in a safespace. When he finally gets out into the real world he will not be prepaired for it at all because his school and parents have treated him as "that poor autistic person!!".... I feel bad for him.... Not because he's autistic but because everyone treats him like he is 😐😑😒....
Take that you 4chan dipshits
How kind is this I just love how he was respected wow 😍
Also some of you might not have known this but Beethoven and Einstein had Autism
This goes to show how much the world has changed since 07 when i graduated high school this simply wouldn't of happened 12yrs ago if it did it was a lot rarer honestly i am surprised that no one made a single noise and was incredibly respectful to him you just made a cynic regain a small amount of faith for the human race
I saw the title and got mad.Then I realized how sweet this was 🥺
Phew for a sec there i thought they don't like him because of his autism so they didn't clap
📳🔇📞🔇📟🔇📠🔇📢📳 watching this video with no volume or sound 😁
Dang, I didn't get a bag of candy for graduation 😟
This is maybe the only time slow clap is actually a good thing
Carmel high school? And you give him sour patch kids instead of Carmel?!!!
I'm also holding my breath while watching til the end!
Are we supposed to feel gratitude towards students that did what their principal asked then to do? Or are today's students so misbehaved that when a senior class actually follows instructions that is seen as expressing great compassion? I am not sure I understand the significance of this video.
highschool has diploma degree?
It serves you right, ruthless bullies
Some times America impresses me sometimes .....
This video helps me out so much bcuz I was diagnosed with Type 420 Diabetes when my dad went to go get milk but never returned (still searching for milk) and my mom went to go look for him but she never came back
Imagine getting a phone call during this moment
After reading the comments I was just listening for the fart....Shout out to Jack🎓
Plz explain to me what is sour patch kids?
These kinds of vids are the best oN yoUtUbe! I love itAm in teaRsAtleast i fEEL i Can breath weLl in tHis pouLlUteD World
If You Fart They Will Hear You!
Omg I just feel a lot better about this world. I feel proud knowing that there are people this nice😁.
Awe that’s so sweet. I can’t wait until my nephew graduates.
I like how they tried to make it seem like they were being disrespectful and didn’t clap when he came up in the title.
Why did they give him a bag of chips?
I'm not autistic but I'm hard of hearing and I'm still getting used to sounds even though I've had hearing aids for years. I understand being overstimulated by sounds. I'm still getting used to the sound of a car running, noises from the AC, thunderstorms, crowds etc. Having social anxiety doesn't help it either.
Wtf is so special like I have aspergers and I got my diploma and no news crew showed up, or reported on it, are they that desperate for a story
Liberals love Autistic children and don’t care about other kids with special needs or with anxiety or OCD because if they did appreciate the rest of us special needs then I would have gotten senior awards for academic achievement because I am smarter then most of these fucken kids.
They were waiting for the autistic screeching
This is amazing. There are still good people in this world
If he can get a diploma no one should ever have excuses
I am also Autistic and sensitive to loud noises. I honor this fellow student from graduating and making the professor give a moment of silence for him!When I get my graduation in some weeks, Honestly I will be able to KINDA tolerate the noises
Poor man yet so proud of him.
If this was at my school those stupid children would've still clapped
Hi. Autistic person here. This is a lovely thing to see. Just a gentle reminder though to please use identity first language unless otherwise requested by the autistic individual/s being spoken about. If you'd like to understand why, especially if you've been taught by people who are Allistic but still somehow think they are allowed to decide what language gets used to talk about us, then please engage politely with the Autistic Community and ask US how we want to be spoken about and interacted with, not Allistic (ie: not autistic) people. Autism is not a bag I carry around with me. I AM autistic. Using person-first language for Autistic people implies that 'autistic' and 'person' are somehow mutually exclusive, and that's so last decade. Also, Autism Speaks(the people who tend to advocate the most for 'person first' language as though it means a thing when combined with their hateful ignorant bullshit) is seen by the majority of the Autistic Community as a hate group. Plenty of us have written lengthy explanations as to why if you want to know more. Please do not endorse them, donate to them, or listen to any of their teachings. Listen to us, actual autistic people who are actually speaking. Thank you.
This is the type of people we need in the world
*Trying it avoid Spoliers Like*
Lol trust me I was gonna be that one kids who will clap my butts out like pak pak pak
That’s crazy. Just think... he clearly had to leave his house every single day with traffic noises, construction work going on, loud ppl outside just to get to school then even walk the halls with many many loud kids. He knew there was always a chance of getting severe migraines and being uncomfortable but he took the chance just to go to school and learn.
The boy should of give sour patch kids to the kids for helping him 😊
He’s a real party pooper
