The "Journal of Learning Disabilities" has announced the addition of the following advisors from foreign countries to its Editorial Board: Luise Rossier, Danuta Borkowska-Gaertig, Maria Antonieta Rebollo, and H.F.R. Prechtl. Luise Rossier is currently managing director of the city school for mental retardation in Zurich, Switzerland. Danuta Borkowska-Gaertig is an ear, nose and throat specialist. Maria Antonieta Rebollo is a citizen of Uruguay, where she holds a number of positions related to neuropediatrics.

The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 in the U.S. can be a real ally for parents or other groups planning education-oriented lawsuits on behalf of the handicapped. Richard Feinberg has been elected president at the mid-Atlantic chapter of the American Medical Writers Association. The article also cites the finding of a study conducted by the California State Department of Education, which states that hyperactivity in children can be significantly reduced by the elimination of artificial food flavoring and coloring from their diets.
