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 is a true visionary in the area of childhood developmental disorders, and autism in particular. I have met with children and families whose lives have been transformed by his work. 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 Program, 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, 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 it. His book is a must read."

 —Datis Kharrazian, DC, DHSc, MS, MNeuroSci

“Dr. Melillo presents a very clear and educational view of how a child’s brain grows, from the bottom up…. This is without any doubt an amazing theory that will stimulate a great number of research protocols.”

—Dr. Calixto Machado, MD, PhD, FAAN, President Cuban Society of Clinical Neurophysiology


"Dr. Robert Melillo has unraveled the mysteries of brain organization and translated what we know into simple, practical therapeutic regimens to allow all of our children to reach their unlimited potential. He has produced a message of hope for parents of children, with clear, consistent, and significant results."

—Prof. Gerry Leisman, Director, The National Institute of Brain & Rehabilitation Science, Nazareth, Israel
