This is just a lil’ post to say that the lovely Nikki from @teachingautism interviewed me on her podcast recently and here is the link to the episode:
Do have a listen either on her website, Apple podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts usually 🎧
The episode is all about ‘masking’ as an autistic / sensory person. Thanks again to the lovely Nikki for having me on, and do check out her website here 🙂
Here’s what Nikki wrote in the podcast description:
Today on the podcast I’m talking all about autism masking and sensory processing disorder. I receive a lot of messages and emails from you all about masking or camouflaging. And I thought the best way to help answer your questions – was to do a podcast episode on the subject!
I love being able to share my knowledge with you all, this time I wanted personal experience. I came across Emily on Instagram when she shared a great visual image about masking. And that’s when I knew, Emily would be perfect to come on my podcast.
Emily is diagnosed with sensory processing disorder, and she is currently going through the diagnosis process of autism. She is the creator of 21 and Sensory. And on here, she shares her daily life and experiences to spread awareness and acceptance within the community.
WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?
Today on the podcast, we are talking all about;
- Who is Emily?
- What is masking?
- Why might someone mask?
- What affect can masking have on an individual?
- How do people mask?
- What way can others in the community support you?
- Emily’s personal experience
This is such an open and honest interview from Emily. I hope that you’re able to take away some ideas and knowledge from this epsiode today.
