"“Facemasks prevent the mirroring of facial expressions, a process that facilitates empathetic connections and trust between pupils and teachers. This potentially leads to a significant increase in socio-psychological stress.”

@CoffeeFingers I read an article of an autistic dude who said "this is how I feel when I try to read other people expresions"

@racuna @CoffeeFingers Friend of mine with an autistic teenager says the child finally feels like school has leveled the playing field when it comes to social interaction. Everyone has to SAY what they mean, not just convey with intonation or facial expression, so they're all in the same boat.
