I’ve just added a great new event to my 2012 autism conferences list; I wish this conference was closer as I’d love to attend. Sponsored by the Asperger’s Association of New England, the “Yes, You Are Supposed to Hug Me Now” – Best Practices for Neurologically Mixed Marriages and Other Harrowing Relationships will be held at the Jewish Family and Children’s Services office at 1430 Main Street in Waltham, Massachusetts on December 1, 2012.
David Finch is a humorist and author of the acclaimed New York Times best-selling memoir, The Journal of Best Practices. Married in 2003 and diagnosed five years later with Asperger Syndrome, David has committed himself to relentless self-improvement, sometimes to a comical extent.
Kristen Finch, MS/CCC/SLP, is a speech therapist and devoted mother and wife. After working for years with children with autism, Kristen followed a hunch that David might have Asperger’s. Her insight led to his diagnosis, a moment that David considers a watershed in their relationship.
We’ve heard David Finch’s perspective on how to make a marriage work, from his hilarious and moving New York Times best-selling memoir, The Journal of Best Practices. But that’s only half the story. David’s wife, Kristen, co-presents this seminar, lending her crucial perspective on creating a happier, more fulfilling partnership. Packed with relevant, actionable strategies for making your relationship thrive, this seminar is a must for anyone in love with a baffling partner. David and Kristen will be available after the talk to sign copies of David’s book, just out in paperback.
