This field guide is for women who have just discovered that their long-time partner is a man with Asperger Syndrome (AS), or are investigating the possibility that he has Asperger-typical cognitive traits.
If you are one of these women, Lorraine wrote this guide to help you distinguish the differences between neuro-typical (NT) behaviour and AS behaviour, drawing from her own experience in more than 35 years with a husband with high-functioning Autism.
This is the book she was looking for when she was figuring it out for herself.
Her hope is that by reading this, you will be reassured and relieved that you are not alone. She also hopes that this book will give you tools you can use to start to separate out NT traits from AS traits in your own life, tools that may give you a better chance to smooth out your relationship with your own Aspie mate.
While the book is aimed specifically at NT women partnering with AS men, it is a useful resource for anyone who wants to understand Asperger Syndrome in long term relationships.
