Maxine and Professor Tony Attwood are currently conducting research into
How Useful is Couple Counselling
when one partner is affected by an ASD.
The aim of the research is to discover how best therapists and counsellors working in this area might benefit the couples they see.
The questionnaire is for both the partner on the spectrum and the non-ASD partner.
If you feel you could contribute to this research, please take the time to complete the questionnaire.
