Masking is when you may feel the need to suppress aspects of your identity and present ‘neurotypical’ social behaviors in order to conform to an environment that is not neurodiverse friendly.
This can include forcing eye contact or smiling, constantly thinking of rehearsed responses to questions or scripting conversations, pushing through intense sensory discomfort and downplaying it to others, or disguising stimming behaviors.
