It was wonderful to meet and greet so many SIG 12 affiliates at the November ASHA Convention in Chicago. As always, the convention provides opportunities to explore, learn, and to meet friends.
Welcome to the 2014 year. There will be lots of opportunities to earn CEUs through the SIG 12’s 4 issues of Perspectives.
While the birds are chirping and warmer weather is arriving in many parts of our country, it is a great time to sit back, relax, and read this issue of Perspectives highlighting Telepractice. The articles present a whole new light to telepractice in augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). Jana Cason and Ellen Cohn share the lead article “Telepractice: An Overview and Best Practices” which sets the stage for considering what has taken place with telepractice in the recent years. Michelle Boisvert and Nerissa Hall present “Clinical Aspects Related to Tele-AAC: A Technical Report”. Then Brian Manzanares and Pui Fong Kan’s make us a believer in telepractice with their article “Assessing Children’s Language Skills at a Distance: Does it Work?” Tanya Rose Curtis presents “Case Studies for Telepractice in AAC”. Then David Beukelman, Katlyn Engebretsen, Rachel Hartman, and Karen Hux round out this Perspectives issue with “The Role of Photographs in Face-to-Face Interactions Involving Younger and Older Neurotypical adults”. This issue has fascinating cutting-edge information to shed a new light for practicing AAC.
