The pace of change in assistive technology (AT) is truly awe-inspiring. It is difficult to believe that it has been less than a decade since speech-generating devices (SGDs) were first introduced as iOS applications. The expansion in the number and type of assistive technologies and augmentative alternative communication (AAC) devices and methodologies is paralleled by the expansion in the number and type of AT and AAC users. This expansion has created an evolving profile of AT and AAC users that is fluid and may be dramatically different than one's previous internal category of a traditional AT and AAC user. This issue seeks to highlight new AT and AAC user profiles as well as to detail the thoughtful application of novel methodologies and strategies to promote their generalization across settings.
