“This book provides information and wisdom on how someone with Asperger syndrome can achieve, maintain and enjoy a successful long-term relationship. The content resonates with my experience of supporting and guiding so many adults with Asperger syndrome seeking a partner or requesting relationship counselling, from a couple who have only recently fallen in love to those who have been together for decades and become grandparents. If you have Asperger syndrome or are in a relationship with someone who has Asperger syndrome this book will change your life for the better.”
From the Foreword by Professor Tony Attwood, Minds and Hearts Clinic, Brisbane, Australia.
“Building on her previous work, Maxine gifts the autism community a resource I could have sorely benefitted from when dating and in the early years of marriage. Although I have been with my wife for over two decades, insights within this book contain valuable information that will help my spouse and me form ever closer bonds as we travel the journey of life together.”
Stephen Shore, Ed.D., Assistant Professor of Special Education, Adelphi University, internationally renowned author, consultant, and presenter, and person on the autism spectrum.
Positive, practical and realistic, this book offers a wealth of information on women, dating and relationships for men with Asperger Syndrome (AS).
Many AS men are totally confused and bewildered by women and relationships and find it hard to know what to do, what to say and how to get it right. For these men, understanding the emotional side to relationships and women’s needs can be a complete mystery and they often get it disastrously wrong. This practical handbook provides the answers to Asperger men’s most frequently asked questions about women, dating and relationships, helping them to understand the way relationships work and increasing their confidence and ability to have successful relationships.
This comprehensive handbook is essential reading for men with Asperger Syndrome (and their partners).
It will also be of immeasurable use to counsellors and other professionals working with such individuals.
Maxine Aston is a qualified counsellor and supervisor and presents Asperger Syndrome awareness workshops to counsellors and professionals who may encounter clients affected by AS.
She also runs workshops and support groups for partners and parents that live with a person with AS.
Maxine has an MSc in Health Psychology and is the author of Aspergers in Love and The Asperger Couple’s Workbook, both also published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
She is a regular speaker at National andInternational ASD conferences, and lives in Coventry, England.
