Preventing and treating autism, ADHD, Tourette’s, OCD, and other childhood brain disorders
Does your child have ADHD, autism, Tourette’s, OCD, dyslexia, learning disabilities, or another brain-based disorder?

If so, Dr. Robert Melillo’s new book, Autism: The Scientific Truth About Preventing, Diagnosing, and Treating Autism Spectrum Disorders–and What Parents Can Do Now, was written for you. Dr. Melillo was compelled to write this book based partly on emerging research, but more so on disheartening conversations with young couples who are opting out of parenthood because of the autism epidemic.
