for further evaluation and
assessment.
Much preventive work has
already been accomplished.
Babies are now automatical-
ly screened for hearing at
the age of 7 to 8 months.
There is a similar screening
program for defective vision
for all children at the age of
one year. At the age of 5
there is another screening to
see whether reading glasses
are needed.
Work is not only done with
parents and families on an
individual basis but — as in
the case of parents of very
young mongoloid children —
group sessions under the
guidance of a social worker
have helped them work out
their emotional difficulties
and gain a clearer under-
standing of the nature of the
affliction and how they can
help.

tional contributions to Israel
emergency campaigns; tour-
ism; public affairs aid; ap-

aid to Jews in the USSR and
Arab countries; release of
Israeli POWs by Syria; and
expressions of solidarity with
Israel.

TEL AVIV — "The diag-
nosis and treatment of chil-
dren with emotional, speech
and hearing deficiences must
be done early. By the time
they get to school it is often
too late," warned Prof. N.
Bogair, director of Tel Aviv's
Child Development and As-
sessment Center.
The center is one of six
which receive financial and
professional aid from Mal-
ben, the Joint Distribution
Committee's health and wel-
fare program in Israel.
Dealing with children in
the second and third school
grades, Prof. Bogair found
various severe neurological
problems which should have
been treated sooner. It was
this realization which led to
the eventual establishment
of the city's center, he said.
The Child Development and
Assessment Center establish-
ed by JDC/Malben in 1970
in cooperation with Tel Aviv
receives referrals from the
24 mother and child care
stations run by the city's
health department.
"We are conducting an in-
tensive educational campaign
for the staff at these clinics
. . . to help them shift their
emphasis from weighing the
child and giving injections to
evaluating his general de-
velopment as well."
Future plans include train-
ing one nurse at each clinic
to give a simple test, the
Bailey test, which will screen
children until the age of 21/2
to see whether they are de-
veloping according to normal
standards. If the nurse feels
something is wrong, she can
refer the child to the center
