This issue of Perspectives takes an in-depth look at some of the unique challenges facing speech-language pathologists (SLPs) delivering augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) services resulting in a recommendation that includes the use and/or purchase of a speech-generating device (SGD). The role of the SLP is influenced either directly or indirectly, voluntarily or involuntarily, depending on the funding source providing the reimbursement for clinical services and/or the purchase of an SGD. This issue is not about the who, what, when, how, or why of SGD funding policies. This issue is about factors that contribute to SLPs wrestling with completing the SGD funding processes while remaining consistent with high professional standards.
