Product description


"Disconnected Kids offers a visionary new approach for helping many children with brain-based problems. These valuable clinical insights add much to our tool kit for caring. "
--Daniel Goleman, Emotional Intelligence

"Dr. Melillo's thesis and proposed intervention give hope to all affected parties (children, parents and clinicians) that neurobehavioral disorders of childhood can be eradicated one day in the near future by relying primarily on behavioral and cognitive treatments."
--Metapsychology Reviews

"I found the book to be very interesting and informative, including case studies of children he claims have been cured of some of these disorders, as well as checklists of ways to identify whether or not your child may have a brain deficiency or delay and what side of the brain may be involved. It does seem to bring a ray of hope, as many of us have come to believe that there is no cure for disorders like autism."

"I HIGHLY recommend reading this book! It was very enlightening to me. I do believe that his philosophy on these disorders is accurate and his approach to helping them is valid."
--Sensor Ease
