It's hard to believe that 2006 is almost half gone and that summer is almost upon us! We're delighted to present our third collaborative issue of Perspectives, this time with Division 1, Language Learning and Education.
Our respective managing editors, Mary Ann Lowe and Patricia (Trish) Hargrove, have worked hard to obtain relevant and stimulating articles of interest to both groups. They have succeeded beautifully, and I hope you enjoy this issue on the topic of AAC and literacy intervention. Martine Smith outlines a framework for literacy instruction that can be used with individuals across the lifespan. Beth Foley and Ann Staples offer suggestions for how assistive technology can be utilized to overcome barriers to participation in effective literacy learning experiences. Gloria Soto discusses strategies for supporting the development of narrative skills in children with complex communication needs. Intervention is also addressed by Pamela Hart, who presents considerations for teaching spelling skills. A big “thank you” to Mary Ann, Trish, and all of our authors for an outstanding issue!
