CRAZY TO SANE with Lynette Louise offered FREE in April (Autism Awareness Month) 

Lynette Louise aka THE BRAIN BROAD by Lynette Louise

Global autism expert Lynette Louise raises awareness and offers actionable autism answers around the world as a therapist, author, speaker and neurofeedback specialist. However, her favorite way to spread this important information is with music and comedy. In her  one-woman musical-comedy show  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 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 clinical 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 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 and travel for her and her accompanist.   

Living with autism can be challenging. Learning about autism can be 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! To ask Lynette Louise to talk to your group or to set up a performance in your town you can contact Lynette Louise directly. To find out whether or not Lynette will be performing in your area this month check her website, or better yet, contact her and ask! Often the shows don't get put up on the website because her daughter is both her webmaster and the mother of four girls, including three-year-old twins! The family truly practices what they preach--enjoy your life and the people in it, encourage growth and learning from yourself and those you love, and everything that follows will be exactly what you need!
