This article presents information on the 7th International Conference of the Association for Children with Learning Disabilities (ACLD) held from February 12-14 at the Bellevue Stratford Hotel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Structured for professionals and parents, the conference made use of the several new features, including short-term training sessions for undertaking direct legislative action to benefit learning disabled children; a new education film theater; and an all-day preconference workshop on individualized instruction. The legislative training sessions ran continuously for two days, exploring such subjects as the development of state legislation, working with legislators, organizing action for local programs, and organizing political action units. Throughout the three days, panel discussions explored many areas of the learning disability field, including pre-school approaches, parent counseling, motor training programs, the medical role, and teacher-parent relationships. The ACLD has one or more affiliates in thirty states and the District of Columbia. There are parent-organized groups in eight other states.
