It is important to seek counselling with an ASD-specific couple counsellor.
Uninformed counsellors may not understand the intentions of either partner and so may perpetuate the confusion that exists in many of these neurodiverse of Asperger relationships.
Therapy with the neurotypical(NT) Asperger couples is directed towards the Aspie or the NT to adjust to his or her partner.
Asperger syndrome will cause difficulties in communication, both verbal and non verbal, social interaction and imagination.
Some couples have reported feeling not being understood, not heard and having their problems trivialised by their partners.
At times, the lack of empathy demonstrated by their Aspie loved ones leads many NTs to lose sight of their own reality and collapse into agonizing despair.
