Understanding masking

07 October 2022 15:30 - 16:30

Masking is something we ALL do - neurotypical and neurodivergent alike. But what IS masking? Masking is the single biggest barrier to Autism diagnosis there is. When autistic kids mask in school it creates a dichotomy between home and school behaviours and leads to parent blame in too many situations. In this seminar I look at masking and what it's actually like for people with autism, as well as advice for professionals on how to recognise masking.
