This is the story of how Jodi Rodgers came to be on a show, that went from the ABC to Netflix, but more importantly it’s the story of the relationships that were created with the autistic participants on Love on the Spectrum. All of their lives have changed because of this show, including a three-year project that Jodi and one person have been working on that will support many autistic people and people with a disability to build their own relationships.
