Reality TV series Love on the Spectrum is a hit on Netflix.

It follows young Australian adults with autism exploring the unpredictable world of dating.

Finding love can be hard for anyone, and for those on the autism spectrum, it's often even trickier

Some of the show's participants are coached by Jodi Rodgers, a sexologist and counsellor who has extensive experience in working with people with disabilities.

For her, intimacy and relationships are a basic human right, and education and support needs to be available to those whose disability makes finding and sustaining relationships hard.
