Professor Tony Attwood, a world expert and leading authority on Asperger’s Syndrome and autism and Dr Michelle Garnett, the Founder of Minds & Hearts, present this downloadable resource for neurotypical partners. The aim of the session is to help partners to cope with the demands of being in a relationship with someone on the autism spectrum. Whilst being in a relationship with someone with AS has its own unique rewards, there can also be challenges. The speakers provide insight into typical experiences and difficulties that many AS partners experience in a relationship, as well as the common experiences for their partners. The recording includes a question and answer session, showing the presenters integrating their knowledge and experience into practical strategies and advice.
