The article informs that the first meeting of the Child Development National Advisory Committee after U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare Secretary Elliott L. Richardson announced its establishment. Seldom has such quick action been seen with a federal advisory committee. The group, chaired by Saul Rosoff, acting director of the Office of Child Development, met for two days in Washington to discuss government programs, priorities and responsibilities in relation to day care issues, early childhood intervention, and vulnerable children. On the topic of vulnerability, it is evident that certain conditions are necessary if a child is to reach his optimal social, emotional and intellectual capacities. Some children are vulnerable to developmental disabilities because of disturbances in several of the necessary life-sustaining areas. They may experience problems with regard to their later physical health and social, emotional and intellectual functioning if the necessary conditions are not met.
