How to Hide Your Autism
Presented by Kieran Rose

‘How to Hide your Autism’ is the first of a two-part seminar aimed at practitioners, parents and Autistic people. In this session we will be exploring Autistic Masking (otherwise known as social camouflaging), examining the narrative around it and offering the opportunity to inform your practice.
- Define the “Mask” as it relates to Autistic people
- Explain why the “Mask” exists and why it is specific to Autistic people
- List the indicators of Autistic Masking
- Describe the illusion of “choice”
This will be presented live via webinar on July 15, 2020 and a recording will be available for later access. When purchased, the link for webinar attendance will be given 24 hours before presentation.

Part 2 Coming in August (Date and Time TBA):
‘Why Not to Hide Your Autism’ is the second part of a two part seminar aimed at practitioners, parents and Autistic people. In this session we will be exploring Autistic Burnout, a concept discussed frequently by the Autistic community and experienced by many Autistic people, but sadly lacking in research to evidence it.
