Don't Look Autistic: An Intimate Account of One Woman's Experience of High-Functioning Autism

“I have high-functioning autism, and this means that I usually look normal on the outside. But I’m here to tell you that I am fundamentally different on the inside. By the time I hit adulthood, I learned to hide my autism to avoid unintentionally upsetting or insulting ‘neurotypical’ people.” - Christine M. Condo.

Be sure to join the conversation tomorrow with Christine Condo. Christine was diagnosed with autism at age 42. An outspoken neurodiversity advocate, she works to dismantle stereotypes and debunk myths about autism in her writing. Condo has written for lay press and online support organizations. She has published in the Washington Post, Neuroclastic, and Autism Parenting.

Tune in for an intimate portrait & enjoy!
