Autism in Love

Picture 6A clever and dapper man of 50 with Autism Spectrum Disorder has learned to mask the many limitations of his disability and function successfully in our neurotypical world. But, his triumph comes at a cost. He can “act” neurotypical, but for only a limited time before regressing into a more genuine version of himself, who he says he is “at his core.” His sharp transformation is truly unforgettable. His wife doesn’t mind, and together, they share secrets about their bond and reveal the true meaning of unconditional love.
