Filled with first-hand accounts and the best kept secrets to help your relationship bloom, this book is a deep dive into loving autistic relationships and the unique strengths that drive them.

Based on clinical experience and emerging research, ASC counselling expert Eva Mendes explores the complex and fulfilling relationships between neurodiverse couples. This book takes you on a journey into the relationships of 20 neurodiverse couples from all walks of life, offering insight into how they meet the challenges of daily life and the unique strengths being neurodiverse can bring to a being a partner or co-parent. The couples share down-to-earth and candid recollections of the ups and downs of their relationships, weighing in on topics from emotional connection and sex to managing co-parenting and finances.

Exploring multiple intersections from race, gender and sexuality across autistic relationships, and ironing out the common myths surrounding them, Eva offers a specialist, clinical perspective on each dynamic and provides examples of best practice to have a healthy and happy relationship.

The focus of this enlightening book is about making neurodiverse relationships work and is told in the voices of ten unique couples, each sharing their own genuine account of how they made that happen. All relevant relational topics are covered including, diagnosis, support, financial issues, parenting, sex, and intimacy, to mention a few. I particularly loved the chapter that shared the ten secrets of happy neurodiverse couples. I would highly recommend Eva's book to both couples and all professionals whose lives or work include neurodiverse relationships.

The importance of including and amplifying the voice of the autistic person in any endeavor concerning autism cannot be overstated. What makes this book important -- and so relatable -- is the wealth of personal perspectives shared by these neurodiverse couples. Though every partnership may be unique, the themes that emerge from these personal narratives will resonate with anyone in a relationship.
