I know that his latest book will be another useful tool that will help others learn about and possibly prevent autism in their children in a way that only he can." --Zac Brown, Grammy Award-winning musician and founder of Camp Southern Ground "Dr. Melillo's books are a ray of hope. Jam-packed with scientifically grounded information on brain function and its behavioral correlates, they provide satisfying explanations that parents recognize as relevant to their experience. And because his work is further tied to a simple intervention program, it has the power and potential to revolutionize the field." --Michele Denize Strachan, MD, behavioral pediatrician, Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics, University of Minnesota "Dr. Robert Melillo is one of those rare individuals who can unravel the seemingly unsolvable mysteries of neurobehavioral development with wisdom, compassion, and vast perspective. His unique, groundbreaking, and research-based approach to improving brain function introduces the process of unlocking each child's potential." --Pamela D. Garcy, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and professor of cognitive behavioral therapy, Argosy University, Dallas "Dr. Melillo, one of the world's leading experts in childhood developmental disorders, has organized the best scientifically referenced source of risk factors for autism, which all future parents should know about.

"Whether ADHD, autism, dyslexia or any number of neurobehavioral disorders affecting children, it is clear that what finally manifests represents the conspiracy of multiple events. As such, pursuing a multifaceted therapeutic approach as has been so deftly presented by Dr. Melillo offers up a welcome and efficacious contrast to the myopia engendered in pharmaceutical mono therapy." --David Perlmutter, MD, New York Times bestselling author of "Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar Your Brain s Silent Killers" I have worked closely with Dr. Robert Melillo and the Brain Balance team for many years. I have seen firsthand the transformations in the lives of the children they serve. Brain Balance not only focuses on correcting their own unique neurological challenges, but emphasizes the whole health of each child from their individual nutritional needs to their need for special daily activities to embracing and enhancing their family life. --Zac Brown, Grammy Award-winning musician and founder of Camp Southern Ground Praise for the work of Dr. Robert Melillo: "A visionary new approach...These valuable clinical insights add much to our tool kit." --Daniel Goleman, author of "Emotional Intelligence" "Clinically innovative and academically grounded...brings a refreshing, hopeful, and scientifically responsible approach to the field of childhood neurological disorders." --Leslie Philipp Weiser, M.Ph., Ph.D., Harvard Medical School Dr. Melillo s books are a ray of hope.
