About

Ellie Middleton

In 2021, Ellie was diagnosed with autism and ADHD at the age of 24. Although it felt like the light had finally been switched on and so many things finally made sense, Ellie didn’t know how to move forward with this information, or even begin to recover from a lifetime of being misunderstood. And she quickly found that she wasn’t alone. In fact, 80% of autistic females remain undiagnosed at age 18 and only 8% of adults affected by ADHD have a formal diagnosis. And – even with a diagnosis, most are left asking, what now?

Since getting her diagnosis, Ellie has made it her mission to change the way we think about autism, ADHD and neurodivergence and in UNMASKED she shares what she has learned along the way. Written in a bite-sized style for whizzy brains like hers, Ellie shares chapters on mental health, pretty privilege, how to navigate the workplace and the importance of self-diagnosis so that we can all better understand and celebrate neurodivergence, and ultimately make the world a more inclusive place.
