Publisher's Summary

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:

  • 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

More interested in promoting product

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.

this is incredible

I am amazed by what I have learned. I have much more compassion for my children now that I understand better what is going on inside their brains. I will update this review after I have tried the program with them for a few weeks or months.

Can't wait to implement with my 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.

This is a SCAM !! This book is a 12 hour long advertisement

I am a physician. My son has autism. Like most parents of autistic children I would pay or do almost anything that would help my child through school and life. Parents such as myself are often targets for profit hungry snake oil salesman such as the author of this book.

This book does NOTHING other than give fake anecdotes of autistic children that were amazingly cured by the "Brain Balance Center".
Seriously nothing but 12 hours of stories of children magically cured by the Brain Balance centers $7000 twelve week long class.

There is NO legitimate science behind this "treatment". There should be a special place in hell for people that profit off the desperate hopes of parents such as myself.

Do NOT buy this book and do not waste your time and money on their "Brain Balance Center".

scam! scam! scam! do your own research,

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.

Looks to be more a salesman saling a product

In this case his product is their brain balance program. Would be of much more worth just doing a 25 min YouTube video.
