Disconnected Kids: The Groundbreaking Brain Balance Program for Children with Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, and Other Neurological Disorders

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

I will rarely waste my time writing a bad review but this snake oil salesman deserves it.
any parent when faced with a challenged child will look for any way to make their child more normal
it is in our nature
it is not because we do not love our child for who he is but because we want their life... ...more

Robert Melillo is a chiropractor with additional courses taken in neurology, thus making him a board-certifed "chiropractic neurologist". He has worked with over 1000 children, and claims to have the cure for ALL neurological disorders, from autism to schizophrenia, all based on the idea of "brai... ...more

My one star category is reserved for books that I would like to throw in the trash and this book fits perfectly into that category. I wish I could give it negative stars.

This book, written by a chiropractor, brazenly states over and over it can cure autism, ADHD, and other disorders. I could go... ...more

There are many conflicting reviews of this book. Read it for yourself if you want to learn about an alternative method for helping a child with any of several disorders or learning difficulties.

I will agree that the book is highly promotional of the Brain Balance centers - because that's the pin... ...more

We are currently going through the Brain Balance Program for our 14 yr old daughter who has Asperger's. We are in week 3 and seeing some early results. This is a MUST READ for anyone who is on the austism spectrum or suffers from dyslexia, add, adhd, and other disorders. ...more

Just because a bunch of people have read negative opinions held by a bunch of other people about any given book or program, it’s really meaningless until you take the time to engage with it and see for yourself. I have two sons whom I enrolled at our local Brain Balance center from 8/2013-11/2013... ...more

I am still not done with this, and I will finish it. The first five chapters are salesy, poorly written and cliff hangers in annoying way. It's like reading an informercial about his REVLOUTIONARY CURE FOR AUTISM AND ADHD. He comes across as a quack, because he makes so many claims about why the... ...more

The author makes the seemingly bold claim that a number of neurological conditions are just different manifestations of a single cause: hemispheric imbalance resulting from faulty connectivity in the brain. While that doesn't contradict received wisdom about these disorders, the claim that they c... ...more

Brilliant, practical, and understandable. Robert Melillo literally wrote the textbook here on the assessment and functional treatment applications for children with Autism, Asperger's, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, etc. For any parent (or patient) dealing with any sort of neuro-behavioral disorder, THIS I... ...more

If you can get past the Marketing of his Brain Balance Centers it's very good, logical information. I took my child to the center and went through the program. It has made a world of difference! Brain Balance works. ...more
