According to her website, Jennifer Cook (formerly Cook O'Toole) is a best-selling author who was diagnosed with autism when she was 35. Her bio mentions that she got the news after her three children and husband had already been "similarly identified." Each of her books is about autism in some way, and many of them have to do with helping people navigate life with the disorder.

"I think that the things I notice and the messages I offer are universal truths for everyone on the human spectrum — so they resonate with us all," Jennifer said in her website bio. Currently, it's not clear if there's another expert joining Jennifer on the show.

The first season of Love on the Spectrum U.S. premieres on Netflix on May 18, 2022.
