On Tuesday, January 24 from 4:30-6pm, the Richmond Center will host a gala reception at Crossroads Art Center, which will feature remarks by Dr. Melillo and Dr. Smith, as well as appearances by special guests and another book-signing of Dr. Melillo's Disconnected Kids and Reconnected Kids: Help Your Child Achieve Physical, Mental & Emotional Balance.
The revolutionary Brain Balance Achievement Center program(http://www.brainbalancecenters.com) offers an integrated and comprehensive non-drug, whole-child approach that includes academic performance, social abilities, cognitive function, sensory/motor skills, visual/spatial organization skills, and nutrition. The goal: to help kids literally change the connections in their brains.
"The Brain Balance program was built from the ground up based first and foremost on brain science," says Dr. Melillo about the program he created. "It all started with understanding of what the actual problem is in the brain and then using the scientific literature to design a program directed at improving and or remediating that problem. That problem in scientific terms is a functional disconnection."
“I’ve worked with children in the Autistic Spectrum for the past 20 years, and it has become my passion to help these families heal,” says Dr. Mark Smith. “People need to know that there are effective methods available to actually get to the underlying cause of these problems, that they are not doomed to just ‘live with it’. We have seen tremendous improvement using these research based protocols and are thrilled with the results and excited to offer this program to the greater Richmond community.“
The Brain Balance Program© developed by Dr. Robert Melillo, based on his research on Hemispheric Integration Therapy (H.I.T.) – a multi-modal approach to the treatment of ADHD, dyslexia, autism, Asperger’s, Tourette’s, learning disabilities, and other neurobehavioral disabilities found in children. His research was the precursor to and foundation for the program, which was founded in 2003 to help children with neurobehavioral deficits improve their academic, social and behavioral functions.
