Description

Written by the wife of a man with Asperger Syndrome (AS), this work should provide the answers to many of the questions asked by the increasing number of people in that situation. It explains how behaviours that may have appeared odd are the manifestations of AS, and shows how understanding can lead to change, or to greater tolerance. It also provides strategies for living successfully with characteristics that cannot be changed, pointing out that AS brings also enormous strengths to a relationship, and emphasizing the value of understanding.
