Including the reflections of over thirty-five women diagnosed as on the spectrum, as well as some partners and parents, Rudy identifies recurring struggles and areas where Aspergirls need validation, information and advice. As they recount their stories, anecdotes, and wisdom, she highlights how differences between males and females on the spectrum are mostly a matter of perception, rejecting negative views of Aspergirls and empowering them to lead happy and fulfilled lives.
This book will be essential reading for females of any age diagnosed with AS, and those who think they might be on the spectrum. It will also be of interest to partners and loved ones of Aspergirls, and anybody interested either professionally or academically in Asperger's Syndrome. This entertaining and easy-to-read book will be ideal for anyone dating, or in a relationship with, an AS female.
Women with AS themselves, and their families and friends, will also enjoy the book and find it useful. Counsellors and other professionals working with women with AS will find the insight offered extremely enlightening. From an unwillingness to show affection in public or even sleep in the same bed to problems holding down a job, this book looks at 22 common traits that women may discover when they are dating, living with or married to a man with Asperger's Syndrome.
Rudy Simone explores the complications of Asperger's relationships with honesty and understanding, drawing on research and personal experience to inform and advise women with AS partners. She offers helpful tips for improving the relationship and finding fulfillment both individually and as a couple.

It will also be of interest to counsellors working with couples where the male partner has Asperger's Syndrome. Account Options Sign in. Top charts. New arrivals.

How can one also facilitate access to that, in ways that respect the integrity of disabled adults, and also of those people who work with and care for them? Loneliness and Its Opposite documents how two countries generally imagined to be progressive engage with these questions in very different ways.
Denmark and Sweden are both liberal welfare states, but they diverge dramatically when it comes to sexuality and disability. In Denmark, the erotic lives of people with disabilities are acknowledged and facilitated. Although the context of this book is situated in Scandinavia, the research presented provides critical and insightful scholarship that could equip African-based disability academics who are interested in promoting the sexual citizenship of people with disabilities.

In Sweden, however, the attempts at sexual access of people with disabilities are often denied or suppressed. In addition, the authors provide details of the research methodology and study population. In particular, by drawing on various practical examples, the authors demonstrate how the actions of caregivers of adults with severe disabilities are strongly influenced by cultural attitudes that either facilitate or impede the erotic lives of adults with severe disabilities.
The chapter also discusses how these contrasting attitudes influence the emergence of sexual policies and guidelines in Denmark and Sweden.
