Understand Autistic Masking

A focus on autistic masking. What is it? How does it present? How can you identify it? Why is supporting a child to un-mask so vital to well-being and enabling access to education? The content of this course will provide the skills needed to make a child who masks feel safe, as well as considering how the whole school ethos can celebrate difference.

What You Can Expect

This course is an on demand video course that you can watch at a pace to suit you. The content is delivered in bite sized videos that will take less than an hour to watch in total. Implementing the ideas will take longer of course!

Whilst the videos are designed to be watched as a series, you might choose to come back and dip in and out of particular modules to refresh your knowledge.

At the end of the course there is a short activity to help you reflect on what you’ve learned and consider how to take it forwards. It’s absolutely up to you whether you decide to do this, but many people who do tell us that it helps them to apply what they’ve learned to their current context and think clearly about what practical next steps they can take to have a positive impact with their new knowledge, understanding and skills.
