Lively. Cheeky. A global conversation-starter with a doppleganger Sesame Street muppet. That’s Jennifer O’Toole, author of the "Asperkids" series and “Sisterhood of the Spectrum,” the award-winning, best-selling autism-related book collection in the world, and the highly-anticipated “Autism in Heels: The Untold Story of a Female Life of the Spectrum,” already named a “Top Amazing Feminist Book of 2018,” received a starred review from Booklist, and is an Amazon #1 New Release. At the age of thirty-five, Jennifer O’Toole was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome (autism), just after her three young children had been similarly identified.

She is “Ask the Expert” columnist for healthline.com, a featured columnist for Spectrum Woman Magazine, sits on the Professional Panel of the Autism Society of America, and is a go-to editorialist/columnist for Amy Poehler’s girl-power juggernaut, “Smart Girls at the Party.” From her own struggles and self-discovery, Jennifer has built an empire of empowerment. She’s been invited to speak on Capitol Hill, and to the President’s Council on Fitness at the White House Summit on Americans with Disabilities, was the Guest of Honor of Their Royal Highnesses, the UK’s Princess Sophie and Princess Marie of Denmark. She and was added to the “Who’s Who” list of International Aspie Mentors — along with Temple Grandin and Stephen Shore – to contribute to Dr. Tony Attwood’s “Been There. Done That. Try This.” anthology. Jennifer’s unique “have a cup of coffee with me” conversationalist presentation of useful insights has touched hearts, lightened spirits, and broadened minds around the world.
