Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A proven drug-free program addressing the causeanot just the symptomsaof Autism Spectrum Disorders and related conditions.

Each year, an estimated 1.5 million children are diagnosed with autism, Aspergeras syndrome, ADHD, dyslexia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. But even as rates rise, diagnosis and treatment have not changed in 50 years. Since psychiatric drugs, given to more than 20% of elementary school children today, donat cure them, doctors tell parents these dysfunctions will never disappear.

Enter Dr. Robert Melillo and his new understanding of the causes of these disorders: a disconnection between the left and right sides of the developing brain. His revolutionary Brain Balancea program has achieved documented results, dramatically improving childrenas and familiesa quality of life. Since 1998, nearly 1,000 children have completed the Brain Balancea program with remarkable successabehavioral, emotional, academic, and social. Written in an accessible style, Disconnected Kids shows parents how to use this drug- free approach at home, with customizable exercises for physical, sensory, and academic performance, advice for behavior modification, information on foods to avoid, and a follow-up program for lasting results.

Synopsis:

Written in an accessible style, "Disconnected Kids" shows parents how to use Dr. Melillo's proven drug-free program that addresses the cause--not just the symptoms--of Autism Spectrum Disorders and related conditions.

Synopsis:

From the bestselling author of Disconnected Kids, a clear and compassionate explanation of the causes of the autism epidemic—and a scientifically based approach for prevention and treatment.

As he travels the country helping parents and children cope with neurological disorders, Dr. Robert Melillo is always asked one question: Why? Why are autism rates exploding? But an equally important question always follows: What can we do about it as a society—and what can I do to help my child?

In this candid, research-based, practical book, Dr. Melillo presents the latest scientific explanation for how we got here and proven, drug-free strategies that parents can employ to help prevent, detect, and address the autism epidemic for themselves and their families.

With honesty and compassion, Dr. Melillo explains what the latest scientific research tells us about the role of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors, dispelling myths and replacing them with the facts. In addition, he presents early warning signs, a prevention plan for parents-to-be, and an intervention program for babies and young children.
