Publisher's Description

The proven, drug-free program to treat the cause-not just the symptoms-of autism spectrum disorders and related conditions.

Each year, an estimated 1.5 million children-one out of every six-are diagnosed with autism, Asperger's syndrome, ADHD, dyslexia, and obsessive compulsive disorder. Dr. Robert Melillo brings a fundamentally new understanding to the cause of these conditions with his revolutionary Brain Balance Program(tm). It has achieved real, fully documented results that have dramatically improved the quality of life for children and their families in every aspect: behavioral, emotional, academic, and social. Disconnected Kids shows parents how to use this drug-free approach at home, including:
  • Fully customizable exercises that target physical, sensory, and academic performance

  • A behavior modification plan

  • Advice for identifying food sensitivities that play a hidden role

  • A follow-up program that helps to ensure lasting results

Editorial Reviews

"Disconnected Kids offers a visionary new approach for helping many children with brain-based problems. These valuable clinical insights add much to our tool kit for caring. "
—Daniel Goleman, Emotional Intelligence

"Dr. Melillo's thesis and proposed intervention give hope to all affected parties (children, parents and clinicians) that neurobehavioral disorders of childhood can be eradicated one day in the near future by relying primarily on behavioral and cognitive treatments."
—Metapsychology Reviews

"I found the book to be very interesting and informative, including case studies of children he claims have been cured of some of these disorders, as well as checklists of ways to identify whether or not your child may have a brain deficiency or delay and what side of the brain may be involved.  It does seem to bring a ray of hope, as many of us have come to believe that there is no cure for disorders like autism."
—HealthCentral.com

"I HIGHLY recommend reading this book!  It was very enlightening to me. I do believe that his philosophy on these disorders is accurate and his approach to helping them is valid."
—Sensor Ease
