A series about unmasking our authentic neurodivergent selves
Masking Story Series
We’ve published a number of stories on the topic of masking, and later unmasking, one’s neurodivergent characteristics and qualities.
Masking is hiding our neurodivergent traits in order to fit in with the majority neurotypical society.
The act of masking is different for everyone, the stress it takes on people is different for everyone, and the necessity to mask for one’s self-preservation is different for everyone.
As such, I am grateful to our fellow Neurodiversified writers for sharing their stories about masking and unmasking, to help share a diversity of perspectives and experiences.
Later, I compared Masking with Code Switching, discovering the similarities between the two social behaviours.

We’re always on the lookout for more educational, informative, and well-written articles about ADHD, twice exceptionality, neurodiversity, parenting, advocacy, and education.
