Love and Asperger's: Practical Strategies To Help Couples Understand Each Other and Strengthen Their Connection
Everyday techniques to strengthen empathy and connection in neurodiverse couples
Life with a partner whose neurotype is different than yours is filled with moments that are surprising, unique, and sometimes challenging. If one of you is on the Autism Spectrum and the other is neurotypical, this book is a helpful and inclusive guide to understanding the nature of your relationship and navigating its particular obstacles ― while keeping your love for each other at the center of everything.
Even though Asperger's is no longer an official diagnosis, many people ― like you or your partner ― may still fit the Asperger's profile and identify with the term. This book is designed with you in mind, featuring expert advice from relationship therapist Kate McNulty. Inside, you'll find engaging scenarios of couples experiencing similar challenges, combined with practical, evidenced-based solutions that address the needs and perspectives of both partners equally.
Love and Asperger's helps you:
- Work together ― Find easy ways to improve communication, cultivate emotional and physical intimacy, and maintain a commitment to learning about each other.
- Appreciate your differences ― Open a window into the inner world of your partner, and the ways in which their experiences differ from yours so you can convey your own perspective more effectively.
- Break through the stereotypes ― Sort out myths and facts so you can understand neurotypical and neurodiverse thinking and make your life together as a couple more loving and more rewarding.
