This article presents a report on the meeting of the 10th International Association for Children With Learning Disabilities. At the President's Dinner at Cobo Hall in Detroit, the Association for Children with Learning Disabilities presented its annual awards, during the 10th International ACLD Conference from March 14-17. Sidney P. Marland, assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Health Education and Welfare, received the John E. Fogarty Award. This presentation was made for distinguished governmental service for the welfare of the child with learning disabilities. Charles Wolfe, superintendent of the Detroit public schools accepted the award for Dr. Marland. Ten publications and authors were also honored in recognition of the increased awareness their articles have brought to the public on this problem which affects millions of children. Each of the authors were given a Certificate of Merit from the ACLD. The convention this year featured some new events which ACLD would do well to repeat. Most useful were the preconference seminars. The preconference medical seminar allowed participants contact with such fine minds as Richard Masland, Kurt Glaser, Mark Ozer, Archie Silver, and Barbara Keogh.
