The event will celebrate Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and neurotypicality (NT) in relationships. We discuss the strengths both partners bring to their relationship, and the unique challenges of ASD in couple relationships. Conventional relationship strategies may have had limited utility in the past, leading to a sense of hopelessness about the relationship. We share our own discoveries of strategies that have been helpful in our clinical practice.

Topics covered
• the implications of ASD in a relationship
• strategies to enhance communication
• manage different social styles and needs,
• manage anxiety, stress and depression
• increase emotional and physical intimacy
• increase mutual emotional and practical support.
