Asperger syndrome (AS) has often been considered to be incompatible with love and relationships, but as the variety of people who are detected with the condition increases, it is emerging that individuals with AS can and do have complete and intimate relationships. Comparing and contrasting both AS and non-AS partners' perspectives, this book frankly analyzes the fundamental aspects of relationships that are frequently complicated by the condition. With all findings showed with case examples taken from interviews carried out with couples, the author takes on problems such as attraction, trust, interaction, sex and intimacy, and parenting. Making use of her comprehensive research study and established profession as a Relate counsellor, Maxine Aston has actually produced a much-needed analysis of intimate relationships where one adult has AS and this book is a must for all those with AS and their partners, along with for friends, family and counsellors.
