Maxine Aston is the only professional currently working as counsellor and researcher in the field of relationships in which one partner has Asperger syndrome, and so she is uniquely placed to write this book... not only does she make clear the difficulties that both partners in such a relationship experience, she also suggests strategies for dealing with them... read this book and breathe a sigh of relief that there really is someone who does understand the impact of Asperger syndrome on both partners in a "mixed marriage". -- from the Foreword by Gisela and Chris Slater-Walker This challenging and fascinating reader dispels myths and assumptions about the ability of people with Asperger to form and maintain loving relationships... Numerous relationship issues examined by Aston and those who were interviewed, including the many difficulties which both partners may face. At the same time there is a wealth of practical information about how couples can address and overcome problems. As there is an increasing number of people with Asperger, and as more and more reach adulthood and seek relationships and have children, this is becoming an important topic. -- Care & Health Magazine Aspergers in Love focuses the reader's attention on an important set of issues relating to intimate relationships and disability, and offers promise for therapeutic approaches that target the needs of these individuals throughout the lifespan. -- Journal of Couple and Relationship Therapy
