SIG 12 Perspectives on Augmentative and Alternative Communication, April 2015, Vol. 24, 43-44. doi:10.1044/aac24.2.43
We welcome and thank our authors for this issue of Perspectives on Augmentative and Alternative Communication continuing our discussions on augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and mobile technology that began with the first issue of Special Interest Group 12's Perspectives for 2015. The past several years have been an exciting challenge. I have had the privilege of serving on the SIG 12 Coordinating Committee; served as a peer reviewer for Perspectives; acted as the continuing education (CE) content manager for Perspectives, written an article for Perspectives, and now I have the honor of being the guest editor for both the January 2015 issue and this continuation issue of Perspectives. The January issue and this issue follow last year's review of points to ponder when considering mobile technology as an AAC system (Abbott & McBride, 2014). The commercial availability of mobile technology has led to increased familiarity and comfort using technology, making it a very popular choice for many individuals and families; however, one size does not fit all. Articles for these issues were submitted by professionals who provide intervention services for individuals with complex communication needs and have covered topics ranging from assessment through implementation across the life span.
