Simi Valley, CA, June 2020 – Dr. Lynette Louise, of Brain Broad Productions, has won a prestigious Award of Recognition from The Accolade Global Film Competition. The award was given for Lynette Louise’s exciting Autism International Docu-series, FIX IT IN FIVE with LYNETTE LOUISE aka THE BRAIN BROAD, both Seasons one and two. The show follows Lynette to work as she stays with families who have a member with autism as well as at least one other disability or cognitive challenge, and audiences learn to love unconditionally while raising the bar for what can be achieved in terms of both skills and happiness. FIX IT IN FIVE features exceptional families, locations (season one takes place in a small town in Uganda and season two takes place in an apartment in USA) behavior science, neurofeedback and brain change learning, real-life drama, violence, growth, and healing.
Upon learning that she was being presented this award, Dr. Lynette Louise said, “It is an honor, for several reasons, to receive The Accolade Award of Recognition for FIX IT IN FIVE in the Web/Internet Programming category. Clearly, when you put your heart, friends and family, experience and passion, into a project of this scope it helps to know your effort is recognized. But, also, I truly wanted to use the internet as a way to reach families around the world that do not have the means to hire or otherwise learn from my life and unique experiences, which is largely how the idea for the show was born. To know that the judges recognized the craft and creativity that goes into an educational and entertaining show such as FIX IT IN FIVE, while elevating the work and the value of internet programming in general, helps to elevate similar work others may be doing. I’d love to see a shift in the way we discuss and include people with disabilities and differences in art and media, and awards and recognition from film festivals and competitions such as The Accolade can motivate others to seek a similar success.”
