Lynette Louise aka THE BRAIN BROAD is doubly board certified in Neurofeedback and has an MS. She is studying for her PhD in Clinical Psychology with a specialty in Psychophysiology at Saybrook University

Global mental health expert Lynette Louise raised eight children. Six of her children were adopted and four of those were on the autism spectrum. Lynette prioritized raising her children into functional adults and succeeded despite her five broken marriages. According to Lynette "I would get married in the hopes that someone would save me. That doesn't work by the way. In the end I focused on saving my kids and saved myself in the process." Lynette was able to guide all but one off the spectrum and into lives of independence.

When asked about her secret Lynette says, "Well, I laugh a lot. I see autism as adorable and quirky and since laughter as just joy percolating it heals. After all when you percolate joy you can't help but save a few lives. Isn't the very definition of saving a life is taking it from misery to joyfulness?"

Lynette travels internationally performing and speaking on the subject of autism and the efficacy of neurofeedback (biofeedback for the brain) administered with joyfulness.

Offering a playful therapy of fun, family dynamics counseling and neurofeedback-- she effectively helps parents become confident experts in their family's healing. She is the author of the refreshingly honest and at times hilarious new book MIRACLES ARE MADE: A Real Life Guide to Autism.

Violence: Don't Make It An Option (Domestic or Otherwise) As an international brain expert I'm often invited into homes of violence. As a child I grew up in one. I now teach and live the actions it takes to say no to violence. It takes some work, but it's also rather simple.

The Abuse of Sensory-Processing Disorder Inherent in Autism April is Autism Awareness Month. Most years this brings a flood of misinformation, generalizations, and semantics arguments that mostly cause harm. As an international specialist, autism mom, and self advocate I'd like to offer honest insight. I've chosen to talk about sensory-processing disorder because I feel not enough attention has been given to the abuse autistic people endure because of it.

ABUSE: The Story Is Happening, And We Need To Narrate With Intention It happens in poverty stricken homes and wealthy homes. It cares not for your religion or race. Fame or obscurity don't define it. ABUSE, and it's vicious cycle, will only be stopped by people with the the guts to discover it. Whistle-blowers brave enough to tell, and talk, and reveal it. Parents, siblings, friends, and colleagues who REFUSE it. Let's refuse it.

Growing In and Out of Autism I suppose this article will be seen as inflammatory, but I just can't keep what I am seeing a secret anymore. Often times, a rush for early diagnosis, the newness of parents, and the push for well behaved nursery school children all combine and lead to diagnosis that in my opinion (I am NOT a diagnostician, just an experienced mom and clinician) create a disorder. To change that, we need to remember to play.

State Dependent Learning: A Teaching and Autism Aha Moment I spent years trying to teach parents and educators something that I could understand and do easily, but never quite explain. Suddenly, in neuroanatomy class, I was offered words and science that helped me clarify. I jumped for joy! This is how you teach a child, with or without autism!

Craziness Creeps up on us-- Generation after generation. Although this is not about the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, it also is. Just as we would have others do, it is necessary that we accept responsibility. Finger pointing, blame gaming and abdicating responsibility has brought us here. It's time to stop. Please, stop.

When I was Easy to Rape, it was still Rape Regardless of how we feel about abortion, one thing needs to be clear. Rape is rape. Everyone NEEDS to agree on that. How dare this be a question?

Dear President: No More Services for Autism Please. Let's Give Power and Education to Parents. I learned the very hard way. And now as I travel the globe sharing what I know(and continue to learn) I keep seeing the dangers of dismissing this important truth. Think about it. Moms and Dads are like the sun: a free resource we need to harness. Teach the parents while the babies are young. Years ago that is how it was done. The visiting nurse, the house calling doctor, they came to you're home and showed you what to do.

FDA means Feet Divided Apart This is not science fiction. This truly did happen. To my friend, and I'm guessing, others as well. Divide and conquer is quite obviously someones agenda.

Ignorant Is Just A Word The world of autism is fraught with Definition Wars. Autistic or has autism? Aspergers or high functioning autistic? Retarded or learning disabled? The war of words is a familiar one, and the 'R' campaign (a campaign to stamp out the word retarded) has gained popularity and invited many debates and YouTube videos. Perhaps we are wasting time arguing over words, and giving them power, rather than learning to hear intention.
