Global autism expert Lynette Louise raises awareness and offers actionable autism answers around the world as a therapist, author, speaker and neurofeedback specialist. But her favorite way to spread this important information is with music and comedy. In her one woman musical comedy CRAZY TO SANE she has found a way to offer a guilt free outing while gifting audiences with answers and inspiration.
Why comedy and singing?? Lynette Louise raised eight children; six were adopted and four were on the spectrum of autism. As a sensory and socially challenged individual herself she found that stand-up and music were a great way to pay the bills, learn social skills and remember to laugh! She feels honored to share with families struggling for answers. In the introduction of her performance she says in a quiet and sincere voice about her show”… it is also a tribute to the parents of autism. They are a wonderful part of my world.”
Did you say Brain Science?? Lynette Louise tried tons of therapies while raising her crazy brood. With so many challenged children, and by being challenged herself, she was in a unique position to observe and understand the various pros and cons of each different technique on a variety of brains. Eventually she discovered biofeedback for the brain—neurofeedback– and she was hooked. This modality was congruent with her beliefs and observations. And it worked! Guiding the brain to a more balanced state and encouraging focus, neurofeedback is an effective therapy for any brain disorder. Falling in love with the brain she has educated, certified and is now getting her doctorate in psychophysiology.
Okay. But comedy, singing AND brain science! Huh? Lynette explains this marriage best herself in CRAZY TO SANE. Exampling some of the stims and repetitious behaviors she has seen in autistic children and adults around the world, she stops and, out of breath, exclaims, “Being autistic is exhausting!” She goes on to explain how a high number of delta waves in our brains can make behaving strangely just a coping mechanism for focusing. “It’s like your neurons are smoking pot!” she explains. With Lynette’s unique analogies and humor, the brain and its functions become clear and easily remembered.
