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

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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".

    "Pseudoscience Sales Pitch"

    The doctor claims to have a cure for autism. While he does reference some published studies defining the scope of the autism problem only vague references to his own unpublished clinical trials are referenced to backup his conclusions about the cause. Further more he essentially blames parents for causing autism in their children. Of course this can all be cured if you just take your child to his franchise chain of clinics. This is nothing more than a sales pitch using guilt to extort well meaning parents looking for something to help their children.

    Shame on you Dr. Melillo.

    "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.

    "Very informative"

    If you can't enroll in the Brain Balance program for one reason or another, this book gives you enough information to achieve success at home.

    "Very interesting book! Great information!"

    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.
