(and How Not To Be)

Autism & Relationships 5:
Autism seems to shape the way we see concepts of honesty & truth. Autistic eyes often see the way people lie to each other in ways they don't even realise. How does this affect the relationships we have with people who don't see the deception all around us?

(Expressions & Flat Affect)
Autism is surrounded by myths - such as "autistic people lack emotions". Did that come about just because of our faces?

Autism & Relationships - part 1: Dealing with Diagnosis
When a partner is diagnosed as autistic, both of you must work together to understand the new knowledge. Whether a spouse, a life partner, a lover, a friend or a family member is diagnosed, it can cause tension. There's many things than can go wrong, but they don't have to. Both sides need to know where they can help the other AND where they can go wrong.
