Connecting With Your Asperger Partner

Louise Weston

Connecting With Your Asperger Partner

Louise Weston

$29.99

Paperback
Communication and intimacy can feel like a constant struggle in relationships where one partner has Asperger Syndrome (AS). For the neuro-typical partner (NT) in particular, this can be an endless source of frustration, misunderstandings, and tears.

Drawing on her own experience of being married to a man with AS, Louise Weston shows that the road to intimacy begins with letting go of expectations and looking after your own physical and emotional needs. She provides tried-and-tested strategies for relating to and connecting with your AS partner, as well as useful tips for coping with hurtful words and meltdowns, helping your partner to interpret emotions, and finding further sources of help and support.

Above all, she shows that although your AS/NT relationship will challenge you beyond what you ever thought possible, by letting go of expectations and respecting each others' differences, this unique partnership really can be both happy and successful. Brimming with stories and advice from other NT partners, this practical book will help NTs take positive steps towards connecting with their AS partners.

It will also be a useful resource for counsellors and other professionals who wish to deepen their understanding of AS/NT relationships.

Beacon of Hope
5 stars By Tammy Copley, Oct 19 2011
"Connecting with Your Asperger Partner: Negotiating the Maze of Intimacy" is a beacon of hope, lighting the way for partners married to someone with Aspergers Syndrome and desperate for their marriage to work. However! Do not let the title fool you. The book is EASILY adapted for children, teenagers and friends. It has diagrams and charts which can be photocopied for personal or professional use. Speaking of professionals, this book is an invaluable resource to Psychology and Counselling professionals, Health professionals and Educationalists. If you think Asperger relationships are too hard, think again. Weston uses simple, easy to read language that encourages and inspires. She has proven it can be done and shows you how. Written by a Christian but not in "Christianese", the book is selling like hot cakes on the secular market. Let God revolutionise your Asperger marriage with this book!
