  • Eva A. Mendes, author of Marriage and Lasting Relationships with Asperger’s Syndrome for The New Autistic Couple's Workbook

    Every day I hear from either the ASD or non-ASD partner asking me what to do and what strategies to apply in their relationships. Chock-full of practical tips and perceptive illustrations, Maxine's book has long been a go-to resource for me as a clinician and a trusted companion to so many couples around the world and this updated edition is even better!
