A PLEA TO ALL AUTISTIC PEOPLE.
Families and professionals, please share this message to the autistic people in your lives.
Masking is a great tool, but also a probelm for autistic people. I wanted to explain why and what should be done instead.
And I’m not alone, a group of autistic adults have started a campaign which will run this Summer to raise awarenss of masking and give tips and advice so that other autistic poeple can have the best possible lives. So far there have been blog posts, videos and even an interview on Sky News!
You can find out more about the #TakeTheMaskOff campaign by watching this fantastic video by some amazing autistic advoacates: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-jnKYjAY4Y&t=16s
