Welcome to this issue of Perspectives on Augmentative and Alternative Communication!
As is our tradition, in this issue and the December issue will provide a “recap” of topics and presentations from the Division conference held this past winter. This provides attendees an opportunity to review the content of this year's offerings and, more important, provides all Division affiliates the chance to partake of the excellent papers provided by of our distinguished presenters. Thanks to Jan Bedrosian, who organized the program, I think you will enjoy learning more about AAC and Pragmatics.
Bonnie Brinton and Martin Fujiki share their thoughts and expertise on emotional competence in conversation using AAC. Sarah Blackstone and her colleague David Wilkins define the issues in social competence, its relationship to emotional competence, and the impact on AAC users. Marilyn Buzolich presents a clinical tool to capture and describe the nature of the interactions of children with complex communication needs and their partners in interactive contexts. Ann Beck presents a thoughtful discussion of peer attitudes towards children and teens who use AAC and reminds us of the need for continued work to improve attitudes.
