Kieran and Jodie invite you to explore all things 'autistic masking', with a focus on children and education. with them in the recording of their February 2021 session.

This is the recording of their sold-out February 2021; a semi-structured talk which invited open discussion and questions throughout.

What the session covers:

  • What is masking
  • Myth busting
  • Masking; when does it start
  • Why & how masking behaviour is sustained
  • Implications of masking long term
  • The dangers of unmasking
  • Supporting safe unmasking
  • Developing mutually respectful relationships
  • Saying 'NO'

In order to keep the training accessible it is the same cost, £15, as the live session. The only difference being that as this is a recording you do not have the opportunity to ask questions.
