Social Camouflaging in Autism: Understanding the Nature, Consequences and Costs of Camouflaging by Autistic People (Webinar)
‘Social camouflaging’ is a term used to describe a set of behaviours designed to mask and/or compensate for autistic characteristics in social situations. Camouflaging is an important part of the day-to-day experience of many autistic people, and has major implications for clinical and educational practice. Despite this it has only recently become the focus of research.
This presentation will draw upon a range of new research projects to describe camouflaging and will address the following questions:
- how can camouflaging be identified measured?
- how common is camouflaging amongst males and females on the autism spectrum? (3) why do people camouflage?
- are there positive consequences of camouflaging?
- what are costs autistic people experience from camouflaging?
Professor William Mandy will explore the implications for clinical and educational practice, making recommendations for supporting autistic young people and adults in a range of settings.
