"Asperger’s in Love"
February 9, 2012
By Autism Society
Asperger’s Syndrome has often been considered to be incompatible with love and relationships, but as the number of people who are diagnosed with the disorder increases, it is becoming apparent that people with AS can and do have full and intimate relationships. Comparing and contrasting both AS and non-AS partner’ viewpoints, this book frankly examines the fundamental aspects of relationships that are often complication by the condition. Illustrating her guidance with case examples taken from interviews conducted with couples, the author tackles issues such as attraction, trust, communication, sex and intimacy and parenting. Drawing on her extensive research and established career as a Relate counselor, Maxine Aston has produced a much-needed analysis of intimate relationships where one adult has AS. This book is a must for all those with AS and their partners, as well as for friends, family and counselors working with couples in this field. Read more on on Amazon
