We are now half way through April, Autism Awareness month.  Most autism advocates and groups have been trying to take advantage of this timely focus to share with volume their ideas of autism acceptance, awareness and action. Lynette Louise aka The Brain Broad is no exception! Though she travels around the world working in the homes of families struggling to help autistic loved ones all year round, every April she also offers her services as a speaker and performer free of charge, sharing her skills and understanding with professionals and parents and autistic individuals around the globe.

Her intention is to teach herself out of work. The goal, according to Lynette, has always been to offer parents and autistic individuals the answers she fought a lifetime searching for so that she can stay home and enjoy her own family. "This is how I've run all of my businesses. I know I'm a success when I can quit." Lynette admits.

This desire to share everything she knows, the efficacy of play therapy, family dynamics and neurofeedback in every single home she visits around the globe, led to a fantastic idea. A reality series, so audiences could follow and see and listen and learn. FIX IT IN FIVE with LYNETTE LOUISE aka THE BRAIN BROAD  is an idea hatched out of Lynette's desire to share her tools of change with volume!

THE IDEA : Five families, five days, five countries, five different mental health issues.

By offering her services as a reality show, Lynette will be able to give families who are willing to be on camera a free five day life changing therapy marathon. At the same time audiences will be gifted with answers, entertainment and an exampling of living life with creativity and intention. Lynette is in touch with her silly side which is useful for teaching kids. She is also in touch with her dorky side which has an unmatched passion for the brain, and its disorders. Whether it's depression, dyslexia, ADD, OCD, autism, Parkinson's etc., she has an analogy and answer that makes change easier, and even a little bit fun!

During filming, Lynette got a good head-butt from an autistic teen she was working with and lost a tooth. With this event (which brings blood and action to the series!) there was a huge learning for both mom and son. Lynette explains, "You can't walk gingerly. You have to say I'm going to love you with gusto and we are going to get to the end of this." Audiences will love FIX IT IN FIVE   with gusto.

It was important to Lynette Louise from the very beginning that each of the families chosen be drastically different, and that they live in different parts of the world. Though each home will likely be touched by autism, there will also always be other challenges that the family and Lynette will work together toward solving while embracing--and sometimes questioning--cultures and society.

It was also very important to Lynette that her integrity and message never be compromised. Because of this she was unwilling to sell the show to large networks who immediately began suggesting changes and edits that would highlight sadness or make the families who were willingly allowing themselves to be seen and judged by an audience look bad or inept. This is exactly what Lynette is teaching against, and so finding a home for FIX IT IN FIVE with LYNETTE LOUISE aka THE BRAIN BROAD where honesty, answers and kindness would always be the star was a priority.

The show now has that home! The Autism Channel is not only allowing Lynette Louise to call the shots and choose the edits, they are honored and thrilled to have her do so! Their executive producer of programming had this to say about the show: "Lynette Louise we are blown away by your production! Everything about it is perfect. We are thinking of holding it back a short while and promoting the hell out of it. Then breaking it into segments and releasing one a day. Would you have any problems with that?"

Exhausted, excited and broke, Lynette Louise did not have a problem with that! The first episode aired on April 12, 2013, and is now available for anyone with access to The Autism Channel. The folks at The Autism Channel put together this teaser. To find out how to see FIX IT IN FIVE with LYNETTE LOUISE aka THE BRAIN BROAD, along with other very original programming, visit www.TheAutismChannel.tv.

If you would like to contribute to future episodes of FIX IT IN FIVE--financially or with a family suggestion (anywhere other than the USA or Uganda which are already represented) or volunteer editors or camera men--follow this link! http://www.brainbody.net/BrainBody/Videos.html

If we can help Lynette Louise aka The Brain Broad visit five families in five different countries with five different brain challenges, she can successfully quit!

And that would be a fantastic gift for her and her family!
