Connecting with Your Asperger Partner: Negotiating the Maze of Intimacy
Negotiating the Maze of Intimacy
Communication and intimacy can feel like a constant struggle in relationships where one partner has Asperger Syndrome (AS). Drawing on her own experience of being married to a man with AS, the author shows that the road to intimacy begins with letting go of expectations and looking after your own physical and emotional needs.
