About Dr. Melillo:

 

One of the most respected specialists in childhood neurological disorders in America, Dr. Robert Melillo has been helping children with learning disabilities for over 30 years. His areas of expertise include: autism spectrum disorders, PDD/NOS, ADD/ADHD, OCD, dyslexia, Asperger’s, Tourette’s, bipolar disorder, and other mental, attention, behavioral and learning disorders. He is also an expert in diet, nutrition and neuroimmune disorders in children and adults.

As a clinician for 30 years, a university professor, brain researcher, best-selling author, radio and TV host, his cutting-edge research and success with over a thousand children in his private program are what led to the creation of Brain Balance Achievement Centers. Dr. Melillo has a private practice now that helps adults and children with various learning disabilities. He is focused on addressing the primary issue in most learning disabilities and behavioral disorders which is known as a functional disconnection. Since he introduced this concept, functional disconnection has become one of the leading theories in the world related to Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia and more. This work is leading the way toward understanding the underlying nature of these disorders and their causes.

About this event:

The Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS) are a group of heritable connective tissue disorders characterized by joint hypermobility, skin hyperextensibility and tissue fragility. There are 13 genetic sub-types and one for which a genetic basis has not been found (hEDS). Other connective tissue disorders, like Marfan Syndrome, share similar features. Chiropractors are uniquely positioned to play a role in identifying and managing EDS, joint hypermobility, and other heritable connective tissue disorders. They should also be aware of specific precautions to take with this patient population.

Being able to recognize, assess, treat, and refer for multidisciplinary care is imperative for best patient outcomes. This seminar will provide a more in-depth look into the topics related to Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome that Dr. Lasko presented at our July 27 event, and will also expand into other connective tissue disorders and related topics.
