WOMAN of ACTION™
LYNETTE LOUISE: MS, BCN-T, CBS; PhD in MOMLynette raised eight children, (six adopted, five disabled, four on the autism spectrum). Only one retains his label and remains dependent. Born in Canada, Lynette moved to America in 1995. An expert in Autism, and on how to incorporate neurofeedback (biofeedback for the brain) as the main therapy approach for the autistic child, Lynette travels internationally as a therapist as well as performing and speaking on the subject. Her one woman musical comedy showCRAZY TO SANE teaches with laughter, candor and toe tapping tunes. The show—and the CD– are a collage of her life as the daughter of abuse and the mother of autism.
She is now also hosting the radio show A NEW SPIN ON AUTISM: ANSWERS!. Inviting surprising guests, together they explore topics (ranging from neuroscience to stand-up comedy) with fun and fascination until discovering useful autism answers.

Autism Awareness and Answers with Music, Comedy and Brain Science
CRAZY TO SANE with Lynette Louise offered FREE in April (Autism Awareness Month)
Simi Valley, CA March 20, 2012: Global autism expert Lynette Louise raises awareness and offers actionable autism answers around the world as a therapist, author, speaker and neurofeedback specialist. But her favorite way to spread this important information is with music and comedy. In her one woman musical comedy 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 by 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 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 otherwise expensive 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, travel and a small fee for her accompanist.
