It was a wonderful and insightful experience being the facilitator of one of the largest focus groups of this year’s Leadership Conference at Sea Island, GA. So, first and foremost, I would like to thank the 11 participants (Beth Breakstone, Cathy Binger, Jennifer Kent-Walsh, Michelle Droettboom, Tracy Kovach, Eileen Schuler, Barbara Allen-Lloyd, Peggy Allen, Valerie Pomy, Paty Smith, and Lisa Wood) who attended and contributed to our lively discussion about issues in language input and output relevant to AAC and Early Intervention. To begin, our group discussed the importance of knowing what AAC input/output issues are relevant to families, clinicians, and researchers. We continued by discussing what we currently know from the typical child language and AAC literature and finally, what we, as speech-language pathologists, should do to expand our knowledge base about the effects of AAC input and output in early language development.
