The article presents news briefs related to disabled children. Free help for hearing-impaired youngsters will be available from Children's Hearing Aid Banks, a new project sponsored by the hearing aid dealers, manufacturers and suppliers. Formation of the banks was announced by Anthony DiRocco, executive secretary of the National Hearing Aid Society, the dealers' association which administers the program. The program has been formulated to enable American teenagers affected by home and/or school adjustment difficulties to participate in a specially designed residential program encouraging Jewish self-identification in its deepest sense and providing guidance and counseling for the troubled adolescent. The University affiliated program at Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and the USC School of Education are co-sponsoring a one day conference at Edison Auditorium of the University of Southern California on "Piagetian Theory: The Helping Professions and the School Age Child" on February 15, 1974.
