After reading "Disconnected Kids" and having my child evaluated at one of Dr. Melillo's Brain Balance Centers, I had an opportunity to listen to a discussion (or should I say lecture?)and book-signing by Dr. Melillo at the center. I was positively pre-disposed toward him and his program but found his know-it-all arrogance and what came across as an oversimplified approach to every sort of academic or behavioral issue that a parent might encounter, off-putting. He preached-at us and failed to acknowledge any credibility in the research or theories of any other well-respected, highly-qualified & innovative authorities in the areas of childhood brain dysfunctions or education who can boast a high rate of success(i.e. Drs. Daniel Amen, Ed Hallowell & John Ratey & educators Erik Jensen, Bobbi DePorter & Jenifer Fox , to name a few). Melillo drew instant conclusions about some of our children based on a few bits of information and showed little respect for any conflicting opinions that parents expressed (though ours were based on much more complete background info & intense observations, often accompanied by many hours of study, reading & research in our efforts to better understand our kids' issues--along with trying various failed or partly-successful treatments and programs over the years). So I was surprised, after I began reading "Reconnected Kids", at how quickly my opinions about Dr. Melillo's Brain Balance program (as outlined in "Disconnected Kids") and the Family Empowerment Program presented in "Reconnected Kids" turned positive. Though far from easy to effectively implement, it all makes so much sense and seems much less simplistic than either the first book or (especially) Dr.Read more ›

My child went through the Brain Balance Center program 3 times. Unfortunately during and after the program my son's regression has caused him to get less time in a general education classroom and more time in the spec ed classroom. According to the author (IMO) since my child didn't improve using his theories it is my fault because I'm obviously a poor parent. This sort of arrogance annoys me but is all too common in the world of treating autism. I know of other bad parents whose children showed little improvement with the program. But to be fair, I also know some good parents whose kids did benefit using the authors theories, inside and outside of the Center. The book did offer some very good ideas to implement into family life (some of which we already do) which I appreciated. I enjoyed the ideas presented in the book and I agree with several ideas of the author and hope those ideas are brought into the Brain Balance Center for parent training.

The Brain Balance franchise system takes this therapy and offers a very expensive, and one size fits all, treatment plan with a very heavy sales pitch. Look for a local Responsive Therapy specialist.

Every parent who has a child with any degree of a behavioral and/or learning disorder should run and not only purchase Disconnected Kids but this book as well. Dr. Melillo's first book, Disconnected Kids presents a new, noninvasive way of helping children given the diagnosis of ADD/ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia and other neurological disorders. I can't comment of the Brain and Balance Centers as we are fortunate to live in NYC and were able to be seen by Dr. Melillo himself.

Over the past 4 years have spent a FORTUNE on so many different kinds of doctors and therapists to help my now 7 year old son but he was just getting worse. We couldn't figure it out. He was diagnosed to have Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Disorder and Food Sensitivities. All the doctors we saw were the tops in their field and even though some provided temporary improvement along the way, none ever addressed what I now clearly understand to be my son's root problem: an imbalance between his right and left brain functions. As I read through the books, I not only got a deeper understanding as to why my son is having the struggles he is having, but discovered simple noninvasive ways to treat them!
After seeing Dr. Melillo, we have tremendous clarity, specific exercises for our son's imbalances and equally important, a strategy to help our family heal! (Reconnected Kids)
For anyone who has struggled with a "special needs" child, you know how all consuming it can be and the toll it takes on your marriage/partnership and family is undeniable. No matter how well-intended parents are, the family often gets thrown out of whack. In the sequel, Reconnected Kids, Dr. Melillo presents a simple plan with clear guidelines to help bring structure back to an often "broken" or "injured" family.

Reconnected Kids, Disconnected Kids and the Brain Balance program = GAME-CHANGER for my family! As parents of a child with autism, we have spent YEARS and thousands of dollars trying to find 'the thing' that would help him to reach his full potential, not be robotic and allow him to THRIVE in our family. We enrolled in Brain Balance before Disconnected Kids came out and had tremendous success. I often call it the "Perfect Storm" of sensory/motor/cognitive stimulation with nutrition work. Now that we are further along in the process with our son, having "Reconnected Kids" as a resource is invaluable. I LOVE how the empowerment plan gives simple steps to take as a family to implement change and work with our 'blossoming' son. I recommend this book and the Brain Balance program highly! Yes, we drank the "Kool-aid" and are so VERY happy we did.
