I hope you each had a wonderful summer and found time to enjoy friends and family. There is nothing like a little time away to bring on a fresh perspective. Fall brings its own energy no matter where you live. Our September issue is among my favorites because it lets us re-live some of the AAC highlights from our annual conference. Once again, we are delighted to begin the fall with an outstanding set of articles based on presentations from our 2008 DAAC Conference on Linguistic Competence. One of our keynote presenters, Leonard LaPointe, applies this concept to people with aphasia. The AAC perspective to that topic is provided by Lynn Fox in her article about therapeutic considerations and Joanne Lasker, who discusses AAC language assessment. You will also enjoy Melanie Fried-Oken's article on AAC intervention for individuals with primary progressive aphasia. We are fortunate to have a discussion on the interplay between language, culture, and AAC by Mary Blake Huer and an informative review of Medicaid by Steering Committee (SC) member Amy Goldman. We hope that you enjoy the wonderful articles in this issue.
