The Western Star - - TV Guide -

Love on the Spec­trum, ABC, Tues­day at 8.30pm

THIS four-part doc­u­men­tary se­ries fol­lows young adults on the autism spec­trum as they ex­plore the un­pre­dictable world of love, dat­ing and re­la­tion­ships.

Most peo­ple on the spec­trum have the same de­sire for in­ti­macy and com­pan­ion­ship as the rest of the pop­u­la­tion, yet dif­fi­cul­ties in so­cial in­ter­ac­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion are a key fea­ture of autism, which makes find­ing a part­ner an often daunt­ing and dif­fi­cult ex­pe­ri­ence.

Many haven’t been on a date, ever.

Love on the Spec­trum fol­lows seven sin­gles as they take their first steps into the world of dat­ing. As well as help from their fam­i­lies, ex­perts pro­vide our love-seek­ers with prac­ti­cal skills to help them nav­i­gate what can be a con­fus­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.
