Abstract: This project is about Masking within the Autistic Spectrum Disorder. We detected that the people working around this developmental disorder had a great lack of information around this subject. Masking is mostly associated with women and now there are studies revealing that this camouflage has been the reason why ASD is associated more with men than women. This study has given context to the autistic spectrum including different points of view beyond the disorder itself. We looked for information not only about why girls are more likely to mask but we wanted to know about the factors involving this masking, the consequences and how to improve the diagnosis reducing the camouflage that the autistics must do. We started elaborating out Theoretical Framework with the most relevant information currently available about this subject to design some interviews intended for some people experienced around masking. We talked with a neuropsychologist with expertise in female autism and with a therapist who has worked throughout her career with several cases of masking. Finally, we also interviewed three autistic women diagnosed during their adulthood se they masked throughout their development stage. Using al the revolved information we were able to obtain some answers and to design a little project around the purpose to improve the problem.
