SPRINGFIELD, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--One in 150 children will be diagnosed with autism this year. Add in ADHD, Dyslexia, Asperger’s, Tourettes and OCD diagnosis and it is hard to ignore the fact that we are in the grips of a developmental delay pandemic.
What’s going on? Dr. Joseph Schneider, director of the new Brain Balance Center in Springfield, PA, asks a more direct question, “What’s going wrong?”
A widely held, but erroneous belief is that there is no cure for these problems, combined with well-meaning teachers and other professionals using academic approaches, may actually be contributing to the soaring statistics of new diagnosis.”
Parents are repeatedly told that these neuro behavioral and neuro academic dysfunctions can get better but they will never disappear. Not surprising considering that the methods that doctors, psychologists and behavioral specialists use to diagnose and treat these conditions have not changed in over 50 years.
“I can tell you that they CAN disappear. They do disappear. And I have fully documented proof that more than 1,000 children to prove it. It is called the Brain Balance Program, a revolutionary, non-medical approach that effectively corrects the hemispheric imbalance between the right and left sides of the brain,” say Schneider with unbridled enthusiasm.
While studying in a doctorate degree program, Schneider met a kindred spirit in Dr. Robert Melillo, founder of the Brain Balance Program. Both had a passion for helping children with ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Asperger’s, and others. Melillo was researching and developing the brain-based program to help these children. Thus, the Brain Balance Program was born and Dr. Schneider recently opened the Brain Balance Center in Stoney Creek Shopping Center in Springfield.
Dr. Melillo will be in town Monday, September 19th – Wednesday, September 21st for a scheduled series of events.
The “Understand Your Special Needs Child” workshop, will take place 7-8:30 p.m., Sept. 20th at the Springfield Country Club in Springfield, PA. Dr. Melillo will lecture on how to treat the cause, not the symptoms of your child’s “label” and how to understand the difference between behavior and neurological issues in your child.
A professional roundtable titled “Functional Disconnection – A Primer” led by Dr. Melillo and featuring experts from the academic, medical and psychological worlds will discuss innovations in treatment on Monday, September 19th from 4 – 6 PM at Spring Valley Banquet Facility in Springfield, PA.
