Like many neurodiverse couples, Liz and Lisa figured out that they are neurodiverse decades into their relationship, from a podcast, a book, or a movie about a character with Asperger's or high functioning autism. But recognizing neurodiversity is just the beginning ... then what? How does neurodiversity impact an intimate relationship? What is the effect on the couple together and on each partner separately?
The couples you will meet love each other and are in search of therapists who are trained to understand and treat their unique needs.
