Luke Christopher Jackson became famous at the age of 13 when he wrote a book from first-hand experience about what it is like to have Asperger's Syndrome. The book, which had the title Freaks, Geeks, and Asperger Syndrome': A User Guide to Adolescence created a sensation and greatly increased general awareness of the condition.

Luke Jackson has three sisters and three brothers. One of his brothers, Joe, has AD/HD (Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder), and another brother, Ben, is autistic. Luke Jackson, his mother Jacqui Jackson and the rest of their family were featured in a documentary on BBC2 (UK television) discussed on the BBC website.

Luke also recorded a column for BBC Radio 4's programme Home Truths.
