This issue of Perspectives focuses on the support of students using robust AAC devices who are included in general education classrooms. Debra Witkowski and Bruce Baker discuss the relationship between the use of core vocabulary, curriculum content words, and literacy development. Carole Zangari focuses on the supports needed in the general education classroom for successful inclusion of a student using AAC. Solana Henneberry, Jennifer Kelso, & Gloria Soto carry forward with this theme, addressing standards-based instruction for teaching Language Arts and Michele Boruta and Kara Bidstrup focus on teaching the Math and Science standards. Christine Kramlich writes from her perspective as a parent of a student using an AAC device, a special educator, and an AAC consultant. Finally, Cathy George and Faye Warren provide ideas for using AAC user peer-to-peer mentoring as part of the plan for developing supports for students using robust AAC devices included in general education classrooms.
