Expert from ‘Love on the Spectrum’ to deliver keynote at Landmark

PUTNEY — Landmark College will present a free public talk by Jennifer Cook, bestselling author and cast member of the Netflix series Love on the Spectrum on Monday, June 26, at 2 p.m. in the Brooks M. O'Brien auditorium, located in the Lewis Academic Building.

The presentation, entitled “Love on the Human Spectrum,” draws on Cook's experience as an autistic woman with three children, who are also autistic, to bring audiences a unique insider perspective on the beauty of differently-wired brains.

Cook is the author of eight bestselling books, including the Asperkids collection, Sisterhood of the Spectrum and Autism in Heels. She also serves as the on-camera expert for the U.S. version of the series.

A graduate of Brown University and the Graduate School of Social Work at Columbia University, Cook also sits on the Autism Society of America's Council of Autistic Advisors and consults for the U.S. Congressional Autism Research Panel.

Cook's talk is the keynote presentation for Landmark College's annual Summer Institute for Educators, a three-day conference (June 26-28) providing hands-on workshops and world-class research presentations about teaching students who learn differently, including students with learning disabilities (such as dyslexia), ADHD, and autism.
