April is Autism Awareness Month, and while the disability world gets busy looking for ways to raise much needed awareness, international mental health expert (specializing in autism) Lynette Louise aka THE BRAIN BROAD is playing with people to balance their brains. She travels the globe teaching brain science and purposeful play to the disability community using music, comedy, writing, speaking, and hands on outreach work.
Lynette’s most recent book is based on the true tale of one such outreach.
The WingMaker is about a young girl with Cerebral Palsy who was part of a large and loving family. Unfortunately her disability was extreme and the family was afraid to play with her, for fear she’d get hurt. In fact, she had been hurt once, and so her life became about maintenance rather than fun. Fortunately, with the help of Lynette, the family learned to play with purpose. With neurofeedback also added to the home everyone grew healthier and gained skills. The WingMaker–a beautiful rhyming picture book– shares this journey and more with it’s readers, while also revealing deeper truths and actionable play tips they can implement in their own home.
This autism awareness month, Lynette would love to share the value of purposeful play and neurofeedback with your audience as well! In an interview with Lynette Louise your audience will learn:
~The effect of environment on brain health. Not only the toxic or non-toxic chemicals you find in your home, but also your chosen colors, sounds, and attitude!
~What neurofeedback is, and why choosing it over medication is almost always the healthiest and most effective choice.
~The difference between teaching skills and rewarding with play, and playing to teach skills.
~Why getting to know people with disabilities as friends, rather than as folks to feel sorry for, can be the greatest gift you give yourself this season. Perhaps this year!
