“For years, I’ve been using my skills as a social psychologist to make sense of the scientific literature on Autism, and connecting with Autistic activists, researchers, and therapists to develop a rich understanding of our neurotype. I’ve also worked on unmasking myself, getting in touch with the vulnerable, erratic, odd version of me I’d been socially conditioned to hide… I want every Autistic person to feel the massive relief and sense of community I found by recognizing myself and beginning to unmask. I also believe that it is essential for the future of the Autistic self-advocacy community that we each work on living more authentically as ourselves and demand the accommodations we need. With this book, I hope to help other Autistic people understand themselves, join forces with fellow neurodiverse people, and gradually find the confidence to take their masks off.”
