Kirsten Lindsmith, from “Navigating Love and Autism”

The college student’s relationship with Jack Robison, who also has Asperger’s syndrome, is the subject of Amy Harmon’s fascinating New York Times feature. The piece reveals how Lindsmith and Robison’s love grows out of their shared experience of autism while the struggles and tensions in their relationship are also amplified by their Asperger’s.
