My entry into academia 4 years ago as a full-time tenure track faculty member at an institution of higher education came in the middle-age of my career. Prior to that, I worked for 20 years providing clinical services to children in the public schools. My clinical experience in the area of augmentative alternative communication (AAC) afforded me a unique perspective on the skills and knowledge required of professionals who engage in such practice. My daily travails over a dozen years with students with severe expressive communication disorders afforded me a view into the successes and pitfalls in assessment and intervention and the practical limitations faced by most working professionals with inherent constraints of time and funding. These experiences influenced the way I approached teaching AAC courses.
