Global autism expert Lynette Louise aka The Brain Broad 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 is 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 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 three books, all inspiring and refreshingly honest, some at times hilarious. The WingMaker, MIRACLES ARE MADE: A Real Life Guide to Autism and JEFF: A sexually realized spiritual odyssey of stepping into love.
Presently Lynette is host of our popular podcast: A New Spin On Autism: ANSWERS! and the web series FIX IT IN FIVE with The Brain Broad on The Autism Channel! She is also is working on her PhD in Clinical Psychology with a specialty in Psychophysiology at Saybrook University. Lynette holds a computer degree and is doubly board certified in Neurofeedback.
