"As partners learn to shift their lens and begin to see their partners differently and view their partner’s behavior as being neurologically based rather than intentionally distressing, they will begin to understand how neurology matters. This awareness alone allows them to refocus and let go of the anger, blame, and defenses that have built up over the years."

"...couple’s therapists who do not understand AS [Asperger's] may not appreciate how AS’ neurology is impacting the couple, and very often the woman without AS is blamed for being controlling and overly demanding.
