Publisher's Summary

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 Aspergers 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 Aspergers is no longer an official diagnosis, many people - like you or your partner - may still fit the Aspergers profile and identify with the term. This book is designed with you in mind, featuring expert advice from relationship therapist Kate McNulty. In Love and Asperger's, 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.

Omg, this hit home and is completely my reality

We’re a neurodiverse couple, however my husband has been in denial he has Aspergers. This gave me so much insight & clarity. I hope it does the same for him and offers him a very compassionate way of breaking down his traits/ behaviors so that he understands because I now better understand after reading this book. Thank you so much, this was really a great read and so informative.

Advice for both partners

It was very easy to follow, along with the reader. How advice was given to both neurological types was very helpful.

Insightful for both partners

This book gave equal attention to explaining the needs of both the neurotypical and neurodivergent partner, and what situations may cause confusion or present different experiences for each person, and also gave examples of gender diverse couples. I’m a neurodivergent enby not diagnosed with Autism, but I often find myself attracted to folks on the spectrum for their uniqueness and understanding of my own quirks and sensory needs, as well as my blunt and honey communication style.
Still, there’s a great deal about autism that I feel I need to learn, and Love and Asperger’s helped me better understand the needs a partner on the spectrum may have that I wouldn’t readily recognize. Definitely something I will reference in the future to be a better friend and partner to my autistic loved ones.
If you love someone on the spectrum, get this book!
