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™. 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:

Until chapter 10 all the book did was promote his brain balance product and 50% of the whole book was about "FeelGood Success cases"
His diagnosis and testing methodologies are spot one... but the 'cures' and methods he wants to take your money for in his brain Balance locations are extremely vague, pseudoscience and definitely not proven.
50% of the book was designed to make an otherwise ignorant parent buy into his program.
The information in this book was very interesting. I was engaged the whole time I was listening. Dr. Melilllo gives examples of patients he has helped with his program which gives me hope to help my own daughter using his program. Very inspiring.
I enjoy reading history, fantasy, humor, and science fiction. I recently started an online book club on Facebook. looking for good reads!
The so called Dr of this book is a quack, selling a false hope to parents. I have been studying for my masters degree in Special Education for two years and have been studying child psychological since I was in high school. I am also dyslexic, the man claims the with his holistic behavior approach learning disabilities such as dyslexia, Ausitum, ADHD can be cured through his methods. Where as a healthy clean environment with positive applied behavior instructions can aid a person in managing symptoms and developing methods of balance to become productive in society they sadly with never be cured. these are on going life conditions that with proper support can be managed. Please don't lose hope if you are a parent of a special needs child.
Loved it. Still purchased paper copy for implementation purposes. The process of moving from evaluation and assessment to implementation was not as clear cut as I would like, but maybe that is because I too have a right brain deficiency.
After reading the book too many red flags came up, too many promises. this doctor uses the feelings of desperate parents. This is totally wrong! do your own research on this program and the "doctors". I wish these claims were true I really do! however I find these claims to be unfounded. On the surface it seems to have some logic, but after a hole lot of nothing my conclusion is that this is a scam.
I hope it works! ive started with my son. he is 4, almost 5. will update my review after the start of 2016 when we are done!
I cant believe he makes it seem so simple! but you cant argue with science.
Self promoting, not explaining the science behind it, not grounded. I don't recommend it.
I didn't realize all of this . I feel so relieved yet angry that the pediatrician doesn't even discuss this factor. thank you so much needed information.
