About this show

A colorful composite of triumphant and heartbreaking stories told monologue style and interspersed with music and brain science, Thing to Thing to Thing is the tale of Lynette's 20-year search for ways to help her autistic children develop into independent adults, a journey that takes her from fiercely determined mom to international autism expert. Medication, diet, play therapy, auditory integration, neurofeedback, and even home schooling her brood in an RV on the road for a year and a half--this woman has tried it all. The show is an inspiration to those of us who know the challenges of raising any child, with or without a disorder or a disability. Told with brutal honesty and a lot of humor (yes, special needs parents need to laugh too!), Lynette shares what she's learned about healing her children and along the way healing herself from her own troubled childhood. Her story reveals the wisdom that has led to overwhelming success not only with her own children--today, all but one of them live independently--but with hundreds of others as well.
