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.

Black or White This article was inspired by a beautiful picture of Mr. Rogers soaking his feet in a small plastic pool with a black man. The image is a fantastic example of resistance and leadership, but the part that stuck most with me was the date: 1969. I was twelve that year.

Brain Changes that Lead to Depression and Addiction can be Harnessed for Healing There is an important thing happening in the world. Mental illness is becoming less of a hidden secret while more people speak up and out, insisting on being heard and on erasing the cruel stigma around most invisible brain dysfunctions. This is good. But we must be careful. Keep an eye on cultivating answer-oriented frames of mind. In this article I offer some answers for discussion and implementation.

Bill Cosby did us a Favor Loving Bill Cosby felt safe. The confusion is frighteningly common when a perpetrator is someone we love. And most perpetrators are someone we love. We must learn to love, forgive, and not tolerate these actions. How we do this is surprisingly simple.

November is National Adoption Awareness Month - Adoption is Exactly What We Need November is the month to honor Adoption, but it Got Blasted under the table By Bombs, Shooters, Refugees and Politicians. So nobody is talking about adoption. But the strange thing is adoption is exactly what we should be talking about. Especially now. Surrounded by Bombs, Shooters, Refugees and Politicians.

Dear Auntie Carol -- Book Excerpt Recently I was invited, as a speaker for RAINN (Rape Abuse Incest National Network) to contribute to a book they are soon publishing. A book that will include letters from survivors of sexual abuse. This is my book excerpt. A letter to my Auntie Carol.

Autism Awareness, Mother's Day, and Parenting I peer forward into the next twelve months. I see April with autism awareness month and sexual abuse awareness month coincidentally coincide and feel the weight of that collision (both are causes I speak on). Today I feel a little tired as I question my faith: If awareness works why do these months have to come back every year?

Domestic Violence Begins (And Can End) With You Regardless of how close to or how far from domestic violence you live, you have the power to stop it from running rampant. And it does run rampant.

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.

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.

The Why's of an Entrepreneur: The Business of Raising Kids with Autism Behind every business there is a story and a reason, what I call my 'why'. Discovering my why helped me raise eight kids, four with autism, and gain the skills I have dreamed of since I was a little girl on stage in her garage. What's your why?

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. If you have questions or similar experiences please share. If you know someone who has participated in this therapy or who is thinking about it, please forward this article.

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.
