  1. Hello
    I wrote 4 articles for RI Health & Fitness a couple of years ago in the KIDS’ section. The articles were about ADHD, autism, learning disabilities, the neurobehavioral epidemic, etc. I’m a functional neurologist and treat these disorders successfully using HEMISPHERIC INTEGRATION. I’d love to write another article for your magazine on these disorders and about recent, cutting edge metabolic treatment. I guarantee you this is great info. Please visit my website sotisbrainandspineclinic.com to see my bio and credentials. I’m an active lecturer for psychologists, various agencies and the school systems. Please contact me; I’m on a mission to get this latest info to go “viral”. Warm regards, Dr. John Sotis
