Watch below as Dr. Robert Melillo speaks at the AutismOne conference this past weekend in Lombard, IL where he was one of 150 experts at this large-scale five day event. Dr. Melillo is the co-founder of the Brain Balance Program® as well as the author of Disconnected Kids and his newly released follow-up Reconnected Kids. He explains the differences between the left and right sides of the brain and how proper function of each side is important for overall development. He also discusses gene expression and how a gene that should be “turned on” can be “turned off”. Perhaps most importantly, he speaks specifically about epigenetics and how it relates to brain development and neuro-behavioral disorders. Watch as he explains how the Brain Balance Program® addresses the misfiring of neurons, or “Functional Disconnection”, between and within the hemispheres of the brain that is responsible for a host of behavioral, academic, and social difficulties. Dr. Melillo asserts that by stimulating the weaker side of the brain, you can reduce or eliminate many of the learning and behavioral symptoms of disorders like Autism and ADHD.
Dr. Melillo co-founded the Brain Balance Program® to help children dealing with neuro-behavioral disorders like ADHD and Autism reach their full potential. To gain a full understanding of your child’s difficulties, Brain Balance professionals first conduct a comprehensive assessment of all areas of the brain and body. Then they integrate physical and cognitive exercises with dietary change to correct the underlying imbalance, improve function and reduce/eliminate negative behaviors. This proprietary, non-medical program has been successful in helping hundreds of children reach their physical, social/behavioral, and academic potential. Children who suffer with ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Tourette’s, Asperger’s and Autism Spectrum Disorders may benefit from this program. There is a Brain Balance Center near you!
