"Unmasking Autism" by Dr. Devon Price unfolds the hidden autism and the power of embracing our hidden neurodiversity.

We live among countless of “masked” persons who in despair try to hide their Autistic traits. Science and data shows that Autism is significantly undiagnosed in women, people of color, transsexual and non-binary people who first late in life realizes their diagnose. In "Unmasking Autism" doctor Devon Price examines the phenomenon of masking with science and personal insight. The book also gives the autistic reader essential tools to better understand them self and to uncover their true potential.

Forlagets beskrivelse 'Reading this felt like being at home - I didn't realise how much I masked. What an incredible book that I know will be re-read many times over.' - Dr Camilla Pang, author of Explaining Humans'Unmasking Autism is at once a most deeply personal and scholarly account of the damage caused by autistic (and all) people leading masked lives, and how unmasking is essential to creating a self-determined, authentic life... This is a remarkable work that will stand at the forefront of the neurodiversity movement.' - Dr Barry M. Prizant, author of Uniquely Human'A powerful argument for radical self-acceptance applicable to all readers.' - Los Angeles Times'An essential roadmap for autistic people to be themselves.' - NPR'Price's accessible and compassionate writing shines, and readers will feel encouraged to embrace a new understanding of themselves. Its potential to help masked autistic adults, especially those from systemically marginalized backgrounds, makes this book essential for most collections.' - Library Journal (starred review)Have you, a friend or family member been living with undiagnosed autism?For every visibly Autistic person you meet, there are countless 'masked' people who pass as neurotypical. They don't fit the stereotypical mould of Autism and are often forced by necessity to mask who they are, spending their entire lives trying to hide their Autistic traits. In particular, there is evidence that Autism remains significantly undiagnosed in women, people of colour, trans and gender non-conforming people, many of whom are only now starting to recognise those traits later in life.Blending cutting-edge research, personal insights and practical exercises for self-expression, Dr Devon Price examines the phenomenon of 'masking', making a passionate argument for radical authenticity and non-conformity. A powerful call for change, Unmasking Autism gifts its readers with the tools to uncover their true selves and build a new society - one where everyone can thrive on their own terms.
