Not Your Neurotypical Guy

This books provides guidelines for a successful marriage between an NT and an Aspy. 

Having a partner with ASD can feel like a roller-coaster ride for the neurotypical spouse -- riding high one moment on the spouse's charming quirkiness, only soon to spiral downward, exhausted and discouraged, sometimes by the very same traits, which have suddenly taken new forms of expression. In this charming and well-written book, the author shares the ups and downs of marriage to an "Aspy." Any reader in a long-term relationship will resonate to the challenges and joys of living in such close relationship with another.

This books provides guidelines for a successful marriage between an NT and an Aspy. 

Having a partner with ASD can feel like a roller-coaster ride for the neurotypical spouse -- riding high one moment on the spouse's charming quirkiness, only soon to spiral downward, exhausted and discouraged, sometimes by the very same traits, which have suddenly taken new forms of expression.

In this charming and well-written book, the author combines information on autism spectrum disorder and her vast knowledge of literature, pop music, and philosophy with accounts of daily life on a large dairy farm with three sons and a husband with an ASD. In sharing the ups and the downs in their particular journey, the author hopes that others on a similar path may find humor, recognition, and ways to view the unique life of loving an individual with ASD from a new angle.

Not Your Neurotypical Guy Loving a Spouse with Autism will also appeal to those curious about ASD and how it affects someone's life and love. Any reader in a long-term relationship will resonate to the challenges and joys of living in such close relationship with another. (Previously published as Loving the Tasmanian Devil).
