In this issue of Perspectives on Augmentative and Alternative Communication, we highlight the history, current status, and future goals of researchers and practitioners from several distinct international locales. The countries represented depict the science and the practice in several emerging nations. These authors have outlined the critical issues that have confronted them in the past and continue to challenge them and other professionals in their home countries. Their work underscores several of the challenges that we must collectively address in both research and practice, regardless of our national citizenship.
Leila and Debora Nunes offer us an extensive overview of research conducted to date in several domains within Brazil. They describe the development of augmentative and alternative communication systems as well as offer us important information about the spoken language, symbol acquisition, and literacy achievements of children and youth.
