Students who exemplify passion working with individuals who use augmentative communication are the future of our field, a field that stresses giving people opportunities. By building communicative competence for individuals with augmentative communication needs and their communication partners, we, as speech-language pathologists, give people opportunities to demonstrate astonishing potential and to succeed each day.
The idea behind this issue of Perspectives was to present students with an opportunity to publish their work as a model of research initiatives currently being embarked upon by students in the field of augmentative communication. Students presenting posters at the intermediate and advanced levels at the 2010 ASHA Convention in Philadelphia were invited to work closely with a mentor and submit an article for publication in this issue of Perspectives. The result is an incredibly diverse and exciting December issue highlighting student work. All articles are based on research presented as posters at this year's 2010 ASHA Convention.
