Best Asperger Hacks for People Who Have it (Or Not)
This course was so popular that everyone wanted to keep meeting! So, now, you’ll get 5 hours of videos plus access to our weekly group — a group that is so fun that even people who hate groups and hate weekly commitments love showing up. We laugh so hard that we cry, and we help each other along the way.
Why you need this course: People with Aspergers get mostly useless training and advice because neurotypicals tell people with Aspergers how to learn to pass for neurotypical. This course will assure you that you will never need to learn to eat in a school cafeteria, do team-building at work, or go to a loud party in scratchy clothes.
What people with Aspergers do need to learn how to do is not get fired, not get divorced, and not scream at their kids. I could tell you that the key to doing all this is to stop talking. But that wouldn’t make sense to you.
Why this course is so great: I’ve coached hundreds of people with Aspergers, and I have Aspergers myself, and so do most of my family members. I know what I’m talking about.
You will get to avoid all the BS about how kids will thrive and how adults will find fulfillment. You do not need to be told that fulfillment is staying at home with someone you love—who doesn’t make you switch tasks.
So instead we’ll talk about how to avoid the bad advice we get about how to succeed with Aspergers. And I’ll tell you what I see working. I’ll tell you how to get the right medicine from your doctor. I’ll tell you how to diagnose your parents. I’ll tell you how to cheat on tests because if you have Aspergers, cheating is a more important skill than studying.

Video 1: everything you've been told is wrong
Did you know that 90% of women with Aspergers are not diagnosed? This is because the medical community has no idea what they're doing. And the result is that most of the research about Aspergers is understated because half the people who would have been a yes—for any type of research—are a no.
I'll tell you what this means for people with Aspergers and how you can leverage the research that is just coming out to make better decisions about treatment. Here's just one thing you'll find out: Most prodigies have Aspergers. See? No one reports this stuff. You have to get it from me.
Video 2: How to stay employed and stay married
Adults with Aspergers are happy if they love their spouse and their spouse loves them. And they are not stuck on philosophizing about what the word love means.
So the most important skill for someone with Aspergers is to stay married. I will give you hard and fast rules to guide you in picking a spouse. For example, if you pick someone with Aspergers one of you needs a trust fund. And women with Aspergers are the most likely candidate to be engaged to a sociopath.
If you are already married, I'll show you how to look like you function as a normal adult without really doing it. And I'll tell you the three signs that the person with Aspergers is destroying the marriage and needs to be contained.
And I'll show you how you will stay employed if you use the same rules at work for staying married at home.
Video 3: Introduction to the world of paid friends
The reason you don't need socializing in childhood is that you can buy friends. Neurotypicals cannot do this, because they want so much in a friendship. People with Aspergers are more practical.
I have been buying friends my whole life. I'll tell you the types of friends you can buy for home and which you buy for work. And I'll show you how to tell which problems you can solve with a paid friend. And how to get a real friend if the circumstance demands it.
Video 4: Q & A with Me and You
Ask me anything and I'll give you a longer answer than you need until my co-host tells me to shut up. We learn through example.
Tell me you don't have Aspergers and I'll decide for myself and then tell you why I'm right. And then I'll tell you that I know you have Aspergers because you want to be right as much as I want to be right. And wanting to be right is a neurological tic that makes people want to strangle us.
6 months of ongoing support! Meet with the group every week online at 10pm EST
Live video featuring people who probably didn't comb their hair! Snarky chat in the sidebar from people who can't multi-task but are trying anyway! This group wasn't planned. It grew organically from all of us loving this course so much, we didn't want it to end. Everyone in the group has Aspergers. We can all pass for normal if we try, but when we all meet on Sunday nights, it's clear that none of us is trying. That's why it's so fun. And so helpful.
