A New Review of Going Over the Edge?

Oren Shtayermman, a professor from the Department of Interdisciplinary Health
Sciences at the New York Institute of Technology, recently wrote a book review
of Life with a Partner for Spouse with Asperger Syndrome: Going
Over the Edge?
His review was published by the
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders
. I was very pleased with
the review and wanted to share it.

I was particularly impressed about how supportive it was of NT’s living in
these types of relationships. For example, Shatyermman writes,  “The
author reveals in a sensitive and emotional manner, the encounters and endeavors
women (and few men) are faced with while living in a world where spontaneity,
empathy and social cues rarely appear.”

The book review concludes with this statement, “This is an exceptional
book which sheds light on a population often left out of the focus of treatment
and in need of further exploration vis-a-vis issues they encounter as well as
the possible ways to deal with those.”
