When Division 10, Issues in Higher Education and Division 12 decided to develop a joint newsletter issue, we both wondered, “What is the connection between these two constituency groups?” What became apparent to both of us was that all training programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders are facing the challenge of meeting the new ASHA standards and developing course content and clinical experiences that provide students the knowledge and skills across the “Big 9” content areas. In addition to this challenge, CSD programs are in the process of developing and implementing the Knowledge and Skills Acquisition (KASA) form for tracking students’ learning outcomes across all Big 9 areas. As we planned and developed this joint issue, with the guidance and input of faculty with expertise in AAC throughout the U.S., the connections between our Special Interest Divisions became clear. Faculty members in CSD programs need resources, information, and options to implement AAC training. This issue of Perspectives highlights resources that are provided by national leaders in AAC. We both appreciate the contributions of each author. It has been an honor to work with each of you!
