Asperger guide dating
I realize that I have only scratched the surface here.
I welcome your comments, experiences, critiques, and suggestions.
I am borrowing the ideas for this article from Solutions for Adults with Asperger Syndrome (2005), and specifically to psychologist Dr. Lovett's chapter on How Marriage is Affected by AS (Aspergers Syndrome).
Building Understanding Between AS and NT Worlds Here are some autism spectrum facts about individuals with Aspergers that it's important for NT partners to understand: Step 1: The diagnosis of AS must be made and accepted by the AS partner.
For the purposes of this article, I am going to cover the subject of Aspie-NT (one adult with Asperger's and one adult who is Neurotypical).
For every successful Aspie-NT committed relationship, there are many others who are struggling, teetering, and on the brink of failing.
It is strikingly apparent to me that despite all of the best advice, there are not a whole lot of professionals who have figured out a really effective means of bridging the communication gap or they would be promoting that epiphany above all else.
There are many successful Aspie-Aspie marriages and Aspie-NT marriages.Question: Where are all of the real examples of those that have struggled and overcome their Aspie/NT challenges and are now happily married years or decades later?Everyone gives broad and generic advice like, "Both need an in depth understanding of AS" or my personal favorite: "Both partners must make a serious commitment to making the relationship work." Well of course everything you said in this article nearly six years ago is true and appropriate... Even the books out there do not outline step-by-step advice on HOW to accomplish all of these appropriate tips... Seems unfair to be the #1 result (not your doing but definitely a testament to how many people are seeking help) when you are not telling any NT or Aspie something they haven't already figured out if they have made it down the aisle.You can schedule a time here: https://calendly.com/steveborgmanlcpc/15min, or you can contact me via [email protected] we can start off by interviewing you for my Thrive with Aspergers podcast.It would be great if both you and your husband would be on the podcast, so that we can get both a non-Aspie and Aspie perspective.
