Another Personal and Poetic Narrative by Dr. Lynette Louise in Her Latest Book: Sever The Cycle of Abuse with The Sub Shop Savior – Published Jan. 2019 via Motivational Press

January 24, 2019 –  Simi Valley, CA: Dr. Lynette Louise (“The Brain Broad”) is famous for her ability to share important science regarding behavior and beliefs through powerful and intimate storytelling. In her latest book, Sever the Cycle of Abuse with The Sub Shop Savior, she offers audiences yet another peek at her personal traumas while guiding them to answers, both personal and universal.

In similar fashion to her previously published poetic picture book Cerebral Palsy and The WingMaker, Sever the Cycle of Abuse with The Sub Shop Savior is told poetically (though not in rhyme) and accompanied by emotive images. Where The WingMaker offered a collage of photos starring family members in various roles, The Sub Shop Savior presents sketches by one of the author’s grandchildren; Ronan Paris was wrestling with gender identity when The Brain Broad stepped in and offered the opportunity to express those emotions artistically, albeit on a different subject. She hoped that the act of artistically committing to a public project would help with both self-esteem and self-discovery. Lucky for Ronan, it did. Lucky for audiences, we feel it.

The story is of a lost young mother (the author), trying to save herself from a deep and dangerously dark place. Her own strength and intelligence are working against her, having been fed a diet of abuse and lies for the entirety of her childhood. With the tenacity of a mom insisting on becoming healthy for her children and the help of an uncommon stranger, a smelly homeless old woman in a sandwich shop, the tangle of abuse and lies is recognized, examined, and intentionally severed.

The story stirs emotions while it teaches. “You can let go of the baggage in your life when you stop looking at it and focus on a goal of your choosing,” explains Louise.

Dr. Lynette Louise works effectively as a brain and behavior clinician (as well as neurofeedback practitioner) in homes around the world, helping families of various cultures, belief systems, with diverse economic stories. “I help people by sharing much of the knowledge offered in this book. Fact is, it’s true that we are all unique individuals, but it’s also true that we are similar and built with the same basic ingredients. Hence, some general information, when taken in and turned personal, can help everyone. I want to be part of that on as big a scale as possible.”

Dr. Lynette Louise is an award winning author, speaker, filmmaker, and humanitarian. She is also a woman and mother who worked to understand the abuse she survived as a child and how it had infected many of the choices she made as a young adult. With help from a women’s shelter in Ontario, Canada she took steps to sever that cycle, eventually taking the reins and understanding on a deeper level. As the single mother of eight children, six of whom were adopted from homes of abuse and dealing with their own disabilities and traumas, Louise was called to understand the science of behavior so entirely that she could help every one of her own children learn it, regardless of their past experiences and present abilities.

The success of her family is impressive and remains one of her favorite stories to tell. More broadly, she is called to share the reasons and techniques of that success with families worldwide. Sever The Cycle of Abuse with The Sub Shop Savior is a gorgeous and powerful addition to the family of stories that inspire, teach, and challenge us to take the reins, written by a tireless and brilliant woman.

Sever the Cycle of Abuse with The Sub Shop Savior is available in most online bookstores. If you can’t find it at your local bookshop or library, please request it. Follow this link to purchase via Amazon: Sever the Cycle of Abuse with The Sub Shop Savior

Inspire Yourself To Greatness: Change Your Brain, Change The World – NEW BOOK by Dr. Lynette Louise (“The Brain Broad”) Now Available

Inspire Yourself To Greatness is science writing at its best, done with heart, rhythm, and soulful truthfulness. Lynette has written a book I couldn’t put down.” ~Mitch Kaplan, award-winning singer, songwriter, pianist, producer and talent agent known as the musical director/collaborator for the Sandra Bernhard Experience, and UnCabaret

July, 2018, Simi Valley, CA – IMMEDIATE RELEASE – World-renowned brain change expert and award-winning author Dr. Lynette Louise (aka “The Brain Broad”), in partnership with Motivational Press, has released her highly anticipated interactive book Inspire Yourself to Greatness: Change Your Brain, Change The World. Bringing her skills together as an international brain expert, storyteller, advocate, and mom, this timely book enlightens readers with the power of neuroscience, psychology, cultural understanding, and parental love. The result is a compelling brain based book that inspires and empowers readers with expertly timed metaphors and stories that are easily understood while offering scientific insight that engages and motivates.

However, it is a belief in humanity’s ability to discover their own gifts and ideas that drives this book. Dr. Lynette Louise presents strategies and perspectives that enable a view of the possible, beyond what readers may have imagined alone, and then she invites – with great passion and interest – readers to participate in the journey.

One beta-reader told her Instagram followers, “The title, Inspire Yourself to Greatness, is brilliantly accurate. Although the author (Dr. Lynette Louise) does offer inspiration, deep understanding, and vast knowledge throughout the book, she also expertly provides space – both figuratively and literally – for the reader to cultivate and display their own personal beliefs, ideas, quotes, and growth. It is enlightening and, dare I say, fun!”

“You are always changing your brain,” explains Dr. Lynette Louise. “You are either building it up and adding to your convictions or breaking it down and re-creating yourself anew. Both are important aspects to purposeful growth and neither one is better than the other. You are always changing. With this book, I help you do so with intention and tools. And we start off, together, with the intention of growing great.”

This book is of great value to anyone with the desire to know themselves at a deeper level and to gain perspectives and insights that will help them continue to build a ‘greater” them. (The definition of what it means to grow oneself into greatness is decided by the reader at the beginning of the book with many opportunities to edit, change, reiterate, or reinvent along the way.)

About the author: Dr. Lynette Louise is an internationally renowned author, speaker, opinion writer, show host, consultant, and brain change expert. Leveraging her understanding of the brain’s plasticity Lynette gives Leaders of all styles a leg up in their industry. Celebrities, politicians, athletes, corporate leaders, and administrators seek her out for advice on how to optimize performance and improve cognition in the workplace. Deservedly referred to as “The Brain Broad” Lynette works tirelessly correcting brain dysfunctions and improving group dynamics both at home and abroad. Dr. Lynette Louise is the single mother of eight grown children (six adopted, five cognitively challenged) and is a passionate advocate for children and families facing adversity around the globe.

“Amazing writing. This is a brilliant, one-of-a-kind compendium on brain science and how self-awareness of your brain states can open the door to an astonishing new life.” ~Martin Olson, author of Encyclopedia to Hell

Twenty New Episodes of Letters to Lynette with host Dr. Lynette Louise (The Brain Broad) Will Air on The Autism Channel in 2018

May 21, 2018, Simi Valley, CA – On May 15, 2018, filming for twenty new episodes of Letters to Lynette, the popular show exclusive to The Autism Channel, were completed. The segments are expected to begin rolling out in June and will be available on demand throughout the year.

Letters to Lynette is a fifteen to twenty minute show wherein international brain change expert and autism specialist Dr. Lynette Louise (known affectionately as “The Brain Broad”) answers viewer’s personalized questions. The first three episodes of the show aired to great success in 2017 and remain available on demand.

The Autism Channel also hosts Dr. Louise’s renowned international docuseries FIX IT IN FIVE with THE BRAIN BROAD. FIX IT IN FIVE is an entertaining, educational, and inspirational series. The Brain Broad takes audiences with her via the lens of a camera into homes around the world. Each season – of which there are two available for viewing (Uganda, USA) and one to be released this year (Israel) with two still to be filmed (undetermined) for a total of five families in five different countries – brings audiences with Dr. Lynette Louise into a home where at least one family member is affected with autism and an additional diagnosed brain challenge. Often the other family members are also afflicted and mutually helped. With love, creativity, out of the box thinking, and neurofeedback, Dr. Louise gives the family a free five day outreach, helping the family heal while teaching viewers how to do the same. Always there is laughter, learning, forward momentum, new skills acquired and deep connections made.

“I believe families, educators, and care givers will get the most out of what I have to share if they pair the two shows. With FIX IT IN FIVE they can see my advice put into action and made practical. They get to watch it work. I am able to teach tangible lessons while exploring behavior and cultures on both a practical and philosophical level. And by watching a family other than your own be open to learning and candidly sharing their concerns, audiences absorb the possibilities for their own lives because their personal defenses are down. I love all of the families I work with and so I model the exciting changes created by purposeful playfulness and love,” Dr. Lynette Louise explains. “However, with Letters to Lynette, people ask me specific questions relating to their exact situations. Of course I don’t know the people writing in so my challenge is in answering the question in a way that helps them as well as the rest of the viewers. The question is a surprise for me as the producer prints them out and places them in the mailbox. I see the question for the first time and answer with the cameras on. This is done in one take because I want it to have the same feel as a live Q&A and because I want to model that once you understand this population you always know what to do. Having questions in your own personal Letters to Lynette segment answered is useful for the moment of course, but the benefits are exponential and easily applied in all areas of their lives, especially when understood from every angle via the lessons I offer in greater detail with my other projects.”

Dr. Lynette Louise is in a unique position to teach these lessons because she is a mother of eight; six were adopted and four had several mental health dysfunctions, including autism. She was also diagnosed as having come off the spectrum of autism herself. And for the past 30 years she has worked effectively around the globe with families and individuals struggling with various mental health issues (autism, Tourette’s, anorexia, addiction, ADHD, cerebral palsy, etc.). In this way she understands deeply the plight of the parent, the individual, and the professional. And because she has such a knowledgeable grasp of the subject, she is able to take her teachings into any environment and mold them to fit.  “This is why it was so important to me to have a series that travels the globe. What I teach helps people grow healthier and happier in every home, in every culture, and with every style of family. I want to share this gift with others. I remember desperately wanting it myself.”

Previous episodes of Letters to Lynette explored topics such as violence and social skills. The upcoming episodes range in flavor from How do you know if you are autistic? to Is there a connection between my son’s smelly feet and his violence? There was also this crafty one: What do I do about my child’s love of string and belts?

“I am grateful to individuals who are willing to be vulnerable in this way and share their fears or road blocks. Too often I am only able to help people one at a time because of confidentiality or secrecy. I honestly believe this secrecy is a dangerous problem in most cultures. So, again, I thank my letter writers and hope my answers are able to serve as a gift in return,” says Dr. Lynette Louise.

Episodes of Letters to Lynette are available on The Autism Channel (which is free with a Roku Box or Panasonic Viera TV) and can also be seen on their Facebook page. You can send your questions for Dr. Lynette Louise to Lynette@TheAutismChannel.tv. Episodes of FIX IT IN FIVE with THE BRAIN BROAD can be seen on The Autism Channel and Women’s Broadcast Network. They can also be rented or owned via Vimeo On-Demand. Please visit Lynette’s website for all links and more info: www.lynettelouise.com

Recognize, Become, and Choose Effective Leaders with Lessons from The Brain Broad.

Lynette Louise (“The Brain Broad”) Is Returning To Speak At The Annual Leadership Summit America

September 2, 2017, SIMI VALLEY, CA: Back by popular demand, renowned international brain change expert Lynette Louise (“The Brain Broad”) will be speaking at the Annual Leadership Summit America – Albany, November 2-3rd 2017 at the DESMOND Hotel and Conference Center. On an impressive roster with fellow Leadership Influencers – Jeff Hoffman, Sharon Burstein, Forbes Riley, Frank Shankwitz, and Marilyn Suey – The Brain Broad will be showing attendees how to harness their Leadership Senses in pursuit of better Leaders and Leadership Skills.

The Seven Leadership Sensibilities (as described in the book The Seven Senses Of Leadership: The Brain Broad’s Guide to Leadership Sensibilities by Lynette Louise) are Seeing, Hearing, Tasting, Smelling, Feeling, Balancing, and Leading. Lynette is skilled at teaching the science of the senses with passion and easily remembered metaphors, and then taking us several steps further into creating, enhancing, and building our own skills with this new surprisingly fascinating knowledge.

A Tiny Taste Of What Lynette Teaches:

1) SEEING leads to believing and believing leads to seeing: they work together and build upon each other. It is the act of believing (or expecting) that causes your brain to choose what bits and pieces, out of the landscape of possibilities in front of you, that you will perSEEv.

2) People choose their leaders out of fear and love. The SMELL OF SUCCESS in a leader can be thrown out there like a chemical pheromone; a pheromone of love or a pheromone of hate. Lynette shows you how to control your pheromone production through intention, helping you produce the ODOR OF ADORE. You must have the ODOR OF ADORE – not just to get adoration, but to give it. It’s a mutual feedback loop of chemical reception.

3) LEADERS choose strength and set their followers free. In fact, they insist upon it. Leaders Lead and then let go in order to grow. They are always on the move. And every time they step forward, they leave an empty space behind in their wake that somebody else must step into and fill.

BRAIN BROAD TIP: “A Natural Leader naturally knows how to build herself using the world around her and the raw material of her personage. A Learned Leader learns to do the same. In the end, you can’t tell one from the other. So learn. Learn how to Lead and how to not be misLed.”

This is only a small sample of the many fascinating and effective Leadership Sensibilities Lynette Louise will help attendees understand and employ at November’s Annual Leadership Summit America – Albany. And Lynette is merely one of the speakers that will be sharing valuable knowledge!

BONUS: Lynette will host a special no-cost gathering for Q&A on the brain after the summit has ended on Friday. Simply email her with your name and intention to attend. (Scroll down for contact info.)

Whether learning to lead is your motivation, or choosing better leaders – or both! – be sure to attend this powerful event.

Lynette Louise is available for interviews.

The Seven Senses of Leadership – Highly Anticipated Leadership Book by Renowned Brain Expert Lynette Louise (aka The Brain Broad) Released in Paperback

Aug. 28, 2016 Simi Valley, CA – Internationally renowned mental health expert and award winning author, Lynette Louise, released her highly acclaimed Leadership book, The Seven Senses of Leadership: The Brain Broad’s Guide to Leadership Sensibilities, in paperback on Aug. 20th, 2016 – in time for the upcoming American presidential elections.

“There is absolutely no way to get information into our brains other than through our senses,” Lynette Louise, also known as The Brain Broad, explains. “Being a good leader who can create a clear exchange of information– as well as choosing the leader you wish to follow – at its most fundamental level requires a complete awareness and recognition of our senses. Great Leadership requires an even deeper grasp in order to enable the clever composition of messages which must be received via the many sensory paths of the individuals in any team or group.”

This understanding of our Leadership Sensibilities is something The Brain Broad shares expertly with readers in her upcoming book. Via an expert exploration of brain science, a poet’s gift with language, and a mother’s love for teaching and sharing knowledge, Lynette has crafted a Leadership book that engages, informs, and expands all of our senses.

“This is a fascinating book which is coming out at just the right time. The art of leadership is a major topic of conversation worldwide, and The Seven Senses of Leadership presents a holistic view of the relationship between leaders and their teams, and the essential elements of leadership that will teach you to lead with strength and intelligence. This is a valuable how-to guide for leaders everywhere.”

– Jeff Hoffman, co-founder of Priceline. Com, and co-founder of ColorJar

Because Lynette is an international mental health expert, working successfully with people who have various challenges and abilities, it’s not surprising that she also makes clear through various leader examples – i.e. Helen Keller – that , “You do not need to have access to all of your senses – Smelling, Seeing, Hearing, Balance, Feeling, etc – in order to be a Great Leader. Many magnificent leaders were and are functioning with fewer than seven senses. But they are aware of and able to communicate via all them.”

“Take my word for it; this book is all about what you need, and don’t have, when it comes to leadership talent; equally to emergent and assigned leadership. This book will help you harness and understand your influence using the tools you already have, your seven senses of leadership.”

– H. E. Tamer Hegazy, Global Minister of Entrepreneurship (From book introduction)

Whether you’re choosing a political leader, becoming a manager or a CEO, heading a family, or seeking a sense of self, The Seven Senses of Leadership offers you a surprising, in depth, and delightful glimpse into the world of constant information sharing through the senses; giving you knowledge and understanding necessary to lead (and follow) with confidence and awareness. Granting complete access to our Leadership Sensibilities.

The Seven Senses of Leadership: The Brain Broad’s Guide to Leadership Sensibilities is published through Motivational Press and is available for Kindle on Amazon (and was number one in Leadership Kindle books on Aug. 17th and 18th) and became available to purchase as an eBook and Paperback through various other online retailers (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Powell’s etc) on Aug. 20th, 2016.

Globe Trotting, Ground Breaking Docu-Series, FIX IT IN FIVE with THE BRAIN BROAD, Begins Second Season on The Autism Channel – April (Autism Awareness Month)

FIX IT IN FIVE with LYNETTE LOUISE aka THE BRAIN BROAD Season Two:  San Francisco, USA

April 12, 2016, Simi Valley, CA — Season two of the evocative and eye opening international autism docu-series FIX IT IN FIVE with LYNETTE LOUISE aka THE BRAIN BROAD begins airing April 15, 2016, in time for Autism Awareness Month.

Season one introduced viewers around the world to a small family of two in Kampala, Uganda. Everyone quickly adored and learned with this mother-daughter duo: Over the course of five days, Lynette Louise (aka The Brain Broad) taught both mom (Milly) and her seizure ridden seven year old daughter with autism (Trisca) valuable life skills/play techniques and enough neuro-science to use neurofeedback for brain function. As promised by the series host and creator, Lynette Louise, culture, finances, and diagnosis were explored, respected and, when possible, corrected. Never considered unworkable obstacles.

The highly anticipated season two invites viewers into the home of another small family. But that’s where most similarities to the first family end! Five intensive days are spent with Jody and her teenage children Gina (daughter, 17) and Xavier (son, 13). Xavier’s autism is in a pivotal place as the close-knit family struggles to cope with the sexual inappropriateness of autism, tics, and family depression.

“This might be my most important show,” Lynette suggests. “I’m called into homes around the world to fix violence too often. Mistakenly believed to be inherent in autism violence is often exacerbated during puberty and drugged into silence during adult life. People need to see this show. For everyone’s happiness and safety, they need to know what to do before (and when) it gets dangerous.” Lynette adds, “If you know what to do the danger dissipates entirely.”

FIX IT IN FIVE explores challenging, sometimes controversial, topics. Season Two, for example, compares Applied Behavior Analysis vs Child Centered Learning and reveals how the common approach is complicit in creating the violence that is then blamed on the condition of autism. While this show never shies away from a subject, it engages while offering actionable answers, infectious inspiration, and comprehensible brain science. Understanding what is happening makes improvement easier as the family learns to Fix It In Five. This show makes you want to get off your seat and engage with the world in new ways!

Using campy humor, a personified oversized brain full of toys, and entertaining graphics, the tone of the series is always hopeful, kind, playful, and engaging. Lynette’s adoration and respect for the families featured is always on full display. Viewers quickly fall in love!

Season Two of FIX IT IN FIVE with LYNETTE LOUISE aka THE BRAIN BROAD will change lives. On April 15, 2016, you are invited to be one of those lives. Visit The Autism Channel’s website for scheduling info, and Lynette Louise’s website for more info on the series, or to purchase/rent season one in its entirety.

Cerebral Palsy and The WingMaker: An Important Story Gets a New Look For Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month

 

March 18, 2016, Simi Valley, CA – March is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month. In honor of raising both awareness and understanding Lynette Louise aka The Brain Broad and her publisher (Motivational Press) have decided to re-release the renowned book, The WingMaker, and give it the new name, Cerebral Palsy and The WingMaker, along with a slightly new look.

Cerebral Palsy and The WingMaker
The story, which is told in rhyme and accompanied with emotive images, is of Reazon, a twelve year old girl with Cerebral Palsy. Reazon’s ability to use her body is severely limited but her ideas, imagination, and desire to participate and play are not. The tale of how Reazon discovers creative ways to prove her possibilities and her gifts, along with help from her mom and new friend Happy-Ness, is one that all families living with a loved one who has Cerebral Palsy, or any other handicap, would want to discover. So adding “Cerebral Palsy” to the title makes it easier for that audience to find. It makes sense.

However, when asked why she felt compelled to change the title Lynette, a mother of several super challenged children, replied, “I wrote this true and necessary story because of a true and sadly common situation my son and I experienced.” She tells of an all too familiar cruelty. “I was in the grocery store with my autistic son when an older man said to him, barely glancing to be sure I was out of ear shot, ‘Your mother should have had you put down the day you were born,’ and he walked away. I followed that man until I saw him meet up with his wife, who I spoke to directly. ‘I think your husband needs help with something.’ I suggested. Then I told her what he had said and explained that my son had understood him. Knowing, too, that my son was understanding me while I insisted on his value and ability. ‘Perhaps you can help your husband appreciate my son and children like him in the future. The wife was appropriately horrified, and I walked away knowing I had to share a story that would be read by people like him in the future.”

Read customer reviews and purchase a copy of Cerebral Palsy and The WingMaker on Amazon, Motivational Press, Barnes and Noble and other online retailers.

Cerebral Palsy and The WingMaker is based on an experience Lynette had while playing with a young girl. Make-A-Wish® paid Lynette to bring happiness to a child with Cerebral Palsy. From this experience Lynette found her answer to how she can help other moms in her position, by sharing the story. And that is why she gave Cerebral Palsy and The WingMaker a comic book appearance, so that it could be left on any coffee table or office magazine rack tempting the uninitiated to read, learn and change. In this way she hopes to spread grace, love and understanding for all those moms, dads, brothers, aunts, and disabled individuals who need the world to believe in what they don’t see. Until, hopefully, they see.

Lynette 2

The new name will introduce this book to the “right” audience, making it easier to find. It will open new eyes to the value of everyone. Reazon, the twelve year old hero with cerebral palsy, will be able to meet new friends and bring more than just awareness to a community that craves it.

Why Bill Cosby Being Charged Matters

International mental health expert and RAINN (Rape Abuse Incest National Network) speaker Lynette Louise would love to explain to your audience why Bill Cosby being charged is so important. Being charged stands apart from gossip.

Just a few bullet points:

  • If your abuser (in this case, Bill Cosby allegedly) isn’t charged then the victim worries that nobody can accepted him as guilty.
  • -Now the world of social services and the justice system have a record of the abuser being officially charged so things the victim and the victim’s family do for help is supported.
  • -When an abuser is charged then it helps in future possible cases or even when there’s suspicions behavior because there’s a record.
  • IMPORTANT: Years later, when the victim has healed (with the assumption of healing) they can help further their healing by using the document to prove that there was something that happened to heal from. Without proper charges, people will say there was nothing to heal from. that it was no big deal, and a victim easily slips away from further healing.

As an expert Lynette can truly explain this clearly. Lynette herself was sexually assaulted, raped, and abused but never had her abusers charged. When her daughter was then molested, she insisted on a paper trail, knowing how different it would be for her healing. She was right! Her daughter has proof, she has validation that holds up in the eyes of naysayers. Lynette doesn’t. This has been a challenge that she can use to benefit your audience as she can clearly express the importance of Bill Cosby being charged as it relates to his alleged victims, and other women in the world.

As one of the experts/victims in the documentary H.U.S.H, a confessional style documentary about Hollywood’s Uncovered Sexual Harassment (which will air on PBS next year) she can also suggest other experts and guests for an informative segment. 

I encourage you to contact Lynette Louise directly for more information and to schedule an interview. Lynette is located in Simi Valley, CA and can travel to your area or do the interview via Skype.

International Mental Health Expert Clarifies on The Connection Between Violence and Autism

“There is a connection between autism, mental health, and danger,” admits global mental health therapist Lynette Louise. As an autism mother, Asperger’s individual, global in-home therapist and speaker, Lynette knows what she’s talking about. “There is an equally large danger in not being willing to discuss this truth openly.”

You won’t get the information Lynette is sharing anywhere else. Politics, knee-jerk reactions and a concern that autistic individuals will be stereo-typed and feared holds many tongues, but at what cost?

Lynette wrote an article titled Craziness Creeps up on us—Generation after Generation, which was published on OpEdNews.com. In this article she describes with candor, science and personal examples how this violence is often encouraged, if not created, on a national level by our unwillingness to take on the responsibility, or to believe in teaching our children sophisticated thinking.

In response to the horrendous horror of too many mass shootings, often ending in political posturing regarding gun laws and the mental health system, Lynette recorded a special episode of her podcast A New Spin on Autism: Answers with her once upon a time violent and autistic son, Rye. She also recorded a special episode in 2012 after the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting, wherein she takes us through the history of violence on a more personal, and surprisingly honest, level; as a mom and in her own home. Her youngest son (Rye) requested that she tell his story in order to help others. As a child he was known to accidentally kill animals, play imaginary games that included dead body parts and have violent meltdowns. As an adult he has been known to be the one that is taken advantage of, most recently having been attacked in his own apartment. Lynette skillfully shares his tale, uncovering the actions that have not only helped, but possibly saved him. In the more recent episode, Rye and Lynette talk about the more recent shooting and offer answers together.


 

One example of how Lynette suggests changing the story refers to the much talked about, rarely understood, autism meltdown. Lynette says, “If your child is having a meltdown, is screaming and hitting himself, do not run and give attention to the meltdown, do not yell at the child for the meltdown. Do react; stand in their presence and say, ‘when you are finished with that I would love to help you.’ If they are hitting themselves, offer them a squeeze. But do not do it as though you are saving them. Do it like you are teaching them how to help themselves, and then walk them through, logically, whatever led them to the meltdown.”

It is quite obvious that we are all connected, and that changing the story for one struggling family can matter for thousands, even millions, of others. It’s important that we be honest, and find answers.

HALLOWEEN: The Holiday Made for Autism (With These Important Tips)

Spooky and wild. Scary and different. Kind of like learning that your family is now going to perk up and listen every time they hear the word autism. That doesn’t mean every day is like Halloween for these families. It isn’t. But Halloween can be an excellent opportunity for playfully fun learning’s.

Global autism expert, speaker/performer, author and—most importantly mom—Lynette Louise can help your audience (with or without autistic children) get the most out of this boo-tiful opportunity. Some of the actionable and perhaps overlooked treasures your audience will learn:

Imagination Appreciation: It’s often said that autistic kids have no imagination. Yet one won’t sleep without her clock pillow and another wants only to line up his trains and dinosaurs. What do we ‘imagine’ they are thinking? Halloween is the night for exploring and discovering who they want to be and what that looks like to them. With make-up and masks comes a chance to shape imagination. Teaching appropriate imaginative play is lurking…

Awareness in your Neighborhood: One of the ‘scary’ truths about autism is that often families avoid outings and teaching opportunities due to a lack of awareness and understanding in the world outside autism spectrum disorder. Halloween is an excellent time to introduce your quirky selves to the—let’s face it—curious neighbors. Autism awareness in your neighborhood can offer safety and friendship. They probably aren’t as scary as you think… and neither are you!

Social Skills: Whether your child is verbal, non-verbal, echolaliac or only interested in calendar dates, door to door small talk (or if your child is more comfortable, handing out candy to visiting ghouls) is a once in a year opportunity to teach spooky social skills without too much pressure, involved in parallel play there is no need for sophisticated interaction. And, there is the immediate reward of candy!

RE: Candy and its negative effect on our kids, esp. those on a special diet. Lynette will give your audience tips on how to deal with this very real issue, but the bottom line is that experience and teaching opportunities most often outweigh the negative side effects of an evening with gluten and sugar.

Your audience knows their own children’s challenges and strengths. Lynette will help them take advantage of this spooky night (and the days leading up to it) with intention and the important skill of fun learning! Together we can take a step toward taking the ‘scary’ out of autism! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Global mental health expert, Lynette Louise, raised eight children –six were adopted and four of them were on the spectrum of autism. She was able to guide all but one out of autism and into independence.

How to be a Village for an Autism mom this Mother’s Day– Lynette Louise of Brain and Body offers these simple tips

Simi Valley, CA Immediate Release: Autism expert Lynette Louise of Brain and Body agrees that every mom deserves to be pampered and recognized on Mother’s Day. For parenting partners and kids this is a great opportunity to prove that you appreciate the lengths mom goes to every day, by helping out for one! Unfortunately, moms of autism often get less pampered because families and friends aren’t sure what to do.
Global mental health expert, and more importantly, autism mom and individual Lynette Louise aka The Brain Broad, would love to offer some simple suggestions!

 
Neighbors and Strangers:

#1 Think ‘Isn’t that child beautiful!?’

#2 Think ‘Isn’t that mom awesome!?’

#3 Think ‘How can I help?’

#4 Don’t think. Act! Open a door, push a cart, carry a bag, smile!

 
In-Laws and Extended Relatives:

Hire a cleaning lady that uses all natural products and send her to clean up the mess after Mother’s Day.

 
Siblings:

Engage in your special sib’s favorite game of repetitive behavior for at least an hour, and laugh a lot!

 
Parenting Partner:

Do ALL the child rearing for the day and then both of you go out to supper. (If the in-laws don’t do their job, hire a maid to clean-up the mess. If you can’t afford one, involve all the kids and do it yourselves.)

 
Best Friend:

Take her and her special child out while the house gets cleaned.

 
MOM:

Relax and trust your friends and family to do it all! You deserve a day!

 
Some of these tips and tricks (ie think wonderfully, smile and play favorite game with special sib) will make everyone feel more comfortable every day of the year. Surprisingly they also have the ability to help guide your children in skill acquisition and social comfort. Let Mother’s Day be an excuse to begin making those simple, brain changing adjustments! According to Lynette, “Sooner is better than later, though later is MUCH better than not at all.”

How To Avoid Being Stripped Of Your Autism Parenting Power While Searching For A Cure

Lynette Louise aka THE BRAIN BROAD says Don’t Wait, Start Connecting and Guessing Today

The news is often filled with new autism studies, theories, and therapy arguments. As an autism parent, or autistic individual, it can be tempting to sit in fear and wait for a definitive answer or waste precious time in search of a cure before truly parenting with confidence.

International mental health and autism specialist Lynette Louise aka THE BRAIN BROAD says, “Don’t! While you’re sitting in wait, precious early intervention connecting and discovering and brain organization is going undone. Equally dangerous is the control you are handing over to professionals and studies who change their minds about what is true month to month. The autistic person in your life is walking around with the answers, and it’s up to you to roll up your sleeves and get discovering.”

As an international practitioner, Lynette doesn’t discount the value of seeking ideas and answers from outside sources. In truth, it would be foolish not to take advantage of the years of experience and perspective scientists and therapists contribute to the possible solution in the ASD child’s challenges. However it is also foolish to ignore the non-degreed long time parents who have made mistakes, learned from them, and grown eager to share that knowledge in a fashion that keeps other parents in the drivers seat.

“Beware the hawkers touting causes and cures and systems that take control of your choices. Seek answers from professionals, other learning disciplines and parental perspective sharing.” Lynette says. “We know what causes Down Syndrome but we can’t cure it. We can however embrace people with it. In other words, don’t waste time waiting to know why. If a your child is autistic hug them now. Don’t wait to learn how to play or teach them to talk, play and teach them to talk while learning how. Don’t give your power away make it bigger, be the expert. And then learn from others the bits and pieces that will make you better at helping your child, not make you feel that someone else if better than you. This is important because if you believe that others are better than you it will be true and this will make you and your child dependent, forever. ”

A show segment or story with Lynette Louise aka THE BRAIN BROAD will example for your audience how to learn from the child rather than from the changing winds of education and science. It is a delight for any audience to observe her explain with passion the play, guessing, and clue following game that you can do immediately with a loved one on the autism spectrum.

As the single mother of eight now grown kids (six adopted, four on the autism spectrum) Lynette recalls clearly the attempts and ideas that worked to help her children (and herself!) and the ones that didn’t. Your audience can laugh and learn as she shares stories of those mishaps, while revealing the truth that it was the connecting and trying–her believe in herself as the expert–that led to her family’s inevitable and impressive success!

Because Lynette always shares play tips and brain growth facts with passion and easy to understand examples, your audience will also be gifted with concrete tools for their parenting and autism tool box.

It is also an inspirational resource for neurofeedback clinics, therapy centers, and schools.

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.

During Autism Awareness Month (April), Lynette Louise offers her otherwise expensive show FREE of charge as part of her crusade to share answers and understanding in the world of autism. If you have a support group, non-profit organization or a group of curious friends, Lynette Louise will perform at your function for the price of hotel, travel and a small fee for her accompanist. Visit www.lynettelouise.com for more information or to get a peek at Lynette on stage.

Living with autism is challenging. Learning about autism is challenging. Brain science is challenging. Inviting friends and family to a comedy show that offers all three of these with humor, honesty, a lifetime of understanding and actionable tips is a no brainer!

FOR THE LOVE OF AUTISM… A timely and entertaining interview offering concrete Autism Answers… featuring the new book “MIRACLES ARE MADE: A Real-Life Guide to Autism” by Lynette Louise MS, BCN-T, CBS; PhD in M.O.M

Lynette Louise is a different kind of professional. This global autism expert is eagerly invited into homes -from India to Beirut to Kansas and more- as families seek understanding. Using her unique blend of play therapy, family dynamics counseling and neurofeedback, Lynette lights the path to successful parenting. This is because Lynette is a woman who truly gets what it is to live and breathe autism.

Raising eight children on her own, (four on the autism spectrum) and attempting to pay the bills put Lynette in a unique position: observer and teacher to a variety of spectrum disordered brains and juggler of work and family. It also forced her to deal with her own slightly broken brain. Stand-up comedy helped pay the bills and served as a reminder to see the funny in every situation and the possibilities in life’s challenges.

Travelling the globe working with children and their families as well as speaking to large groups of parents and professionals has made it apparent that the growing numbers of autism beg for honest explanations of the autistic brain accompanied by concrete answers. Lynette found most of those answers in the anatomy of the brain by facilitating change with neurofeedback. Even without this technology though, Lynette offers surprising and intuitive solutions for creating positive change in every family, every child; every single time.

Lynette will share with your audience self- revealing, inspirational, informative and often times hilarious anecdotes from her own life as well as from the lives she has helped change along the way. In this way your audience will gain hope and a renewed energy to roll up their sleeves and make miracles!

Some Sample Questions that will get Fun and Informative Answers: How did travelling the country in a van and performing in prisons play an important role in your families healing (surprising story)? Is it necessary to give feedback with a computer to see positive change? Can you explain your belief in autism as a gift? Is it true that autistic children don’t bond, don’t show love? How hard is this on parents? Do you believe toxins in our environment affect the numbers of autism? What is a ‘spectrum disorder’? (Lynette is great at helping people understand this concept) Lynette could be seen doing neurofeedback on camera (to herself or volunteer) so the audience will be able to visualize the therapy.

Availability: Nationwide by arrangement; available as a last-minute guest.

Holiday Fun for Autism and All! Five tips for enjoying the holidays with your whole family

Immediate Release:

Global autism expert, therapist, speaker/performer, podcast host, author and mom Lynette Louise MS, BCN-T, has happily compiled a list of twelve surprising and actionable autism spectrum Christmas tips! As with all her autism suggestions these tips are great for enjoying the holidays and offering concrete learning’s for children on the autism spectrum as well as every other rug-rat in your holiday household. They will be posted on her neurofeedback and autism website www.brainbody.net for Thanksgiving, November 24th 2011. We would love to share five with you now!

1 – Every child likes to shop – their way. So when you take your kids shopping take them shopping – not you. Do this for all your children, not just the autistic child. Admire their choices. So what if they buy their sister a jar of mustard? Maybe they think that is a good gift. Instead of simply redirecting them, try to understand why.

2- In other words give control – your children spend their days being ordered and shaped so let go on the holidays and let them just be autistic (or fourteen) for a change.

3- Make the car your friend. It is familiar and smells like family so if they need a space to pull themselves together in use the car– it goes everywhere!

4- Eat in unison. This means that if they have a special diet either everyone picks their favorite foods and your ASD child feels happy with that, or everyone eats the special diet … because way too often the difference in the diets drives the kids to tantrum.

5 – Give gifts that THEY want, NOT toys the educational department approves of. For example, if your child loves baby pillows give him a refrigerator box full of them. If he wants that every year– so be it. Those other toys come from our wishes not theirs. So those other toys are not gifts; they are lessons.

Christmas is a crazy mix of excitement and stress. Our children feel that energy, especially our more sensitive autistic ones. Lynette’s tips will help moms, dads, grandparents and family friends approach the holidays with intention and fun. Stress often disappears when given the great gift of knowing what to do. Lynette reminds families, ‘You can’t teach a child to relax and enjoy family unless you do’. Happy Holidays!

FAMILIES STRUGGLING WITH AUTISM FIND HOPE AND ANSWERS IN BOOK OF REAL LIFE LESSONS

Official Release Date April 2, 2011 — Global Autism Awareness Day Immediate Release: October 2011

Lynette Louise, the author of this important book (http://www.lynettelouise.com) raised eight children (six adopted, four labeled autistic) eventually guiding all but one off of the autism spectrum.

As a mother of multiple children with a spectrum disorder at a time when it was seen as entirely incurable, she found herself searching for and trying all available therapies. She observed her different children’s reactions to changes in diet and routine, learning to understand and identify their many progressions and regressions. Eventually a lifetime of loving and learning with her children guided her to a remarkable new tool; neurofeedback. Now that she had discovered this effective answer she continued her education, becoming a certified technician and has dedicated herself to teaching what took her so much trial and error to learn. Using a unique combination of play therapy, neurofeedback and family dynamics counseling Lynette travels the globe helping parents become experts in their families healing.

NEW BOOK IS A MUCH NEEDED GUIDE FOR FAMILIES, PROFESSIONALS AND FRIENDS IN THE WORLD OF AUTISM; OFFERING NOT ONLY HOPE BUT A HOW-TO ON HEALING THE AUTISTIC BRAIN.

Immediate Release:

In the last five years the number of children diagnosed with autism has jumped so significantly it has gone from an unheard of curiosity blamed on unloving mothers to a common term and fear blamed on everything from immunizations to pollution, or even an attempt at making excuses for kids who are just out of control. While the world struggles to understand the cause of this epidemic one woman gives the gift of understanding how to love and change not only the diagnosed child but a world completely rocked by autism. “MIRACLES ARE MADE: A Real Life Guide to Autism” is a book that helps readers to understand the diagnosis and gives them the tools to change it.

Lynette Louise, the author of this important book (http://www.lynettelouise.com) raised eight children (six adopted, four labelled autistic) eventually guiding all but one off of the autism spectrum. As a mother of multiple children with a spectrum disorder at a time when it was seen as entirely incurable, she found herself searching for and trying all available therapies, observing her different children’s reactions to changes in diet and routine, learning to understand and identify their many progressions and regressions. Eventually a lifetime of loving and learning with her children guided her to a remarkable new tool; neurofeedback. Suddenly everything made sense. All she had observed, the different things that seemed to help some but hinder others, had a reason that could not only be understood, but also guided and helped to change. Now that she had discovered this wonderful new answer she continued her education, becoming a certified technition and has dedicated herself to teaching what took her so much trial and error to learn. Using a combination of play therapy, neurofeedback and family dynamics counselling Lynette travels the globe healing families through their children.

In “MIRACLES ARE MADE: A Real Life Guide to Autism” Lynette not only shares stories from her personal and professional life but also illuminates the whys and the wherefores of the social climate parents find themselves in when coping with autism. She does this by educating us on the history of science and social awareness in relation to this disorder. She then teaches us how to make the best of what is possible and recreate the healings she has been fortunate enough to facilitate. The reader will come away understanding how to understand autism. They come away knowing what to do.

In order to share what she has learned Lynette chose a user friendly fashion and broke the book down into two sections. The first section is her personal journey shared with surprising honesty and humor. Lynette as mother to eight children struggled in her attempts to understand and heal the families brains while simultaneously trying to pay the bills. Singing and doing comedy on stage turned out to be the best way to feed her family while she learned to see the hilarity of her situation. She shares this humor in the pages of her book even as she shares the frustrations of her journey.

The second section is more of a resource where readers can learn about the science and history of autism as well as the many therapies and diets being used around the globe. Lynette explores with the reader in detail the history of how these therapies and diets came to be, what she has learned works, and why.

Throughout the entire book can be found stories shared by families who have gained help from Lynette. She underscores the message that Miracles Are Made out of hard work and loving persistence through these stories. She also uses the stories to express the different paths experienced by different therapy choices. Lynette then explains how and why these therapies were complimented or replaced by what she brought to the table.

While there are many books out there on autism, “MIRACLES ARE MADE” is the only one that offers historical understanding, personal triumph, enlightenment on the incongruence of present day approaches and concrete answers. This book is written for both parents and professionals because Lynette is both a parent and a professional who desires to be instrumental in creating positive change.
