Greetings and welcome to the new and improved part of Perspectives. In keeping with the new format of Perspectives, I would like to present to you two articles centered on the issue of Myths in the field of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). Mary Ann Romski has graciously offered to be the guest editor for this issue. Two articles have been submitted, reviewed, edited for publication. Amy Goldman writes about myths that surround funding issues in AAC, whereas Ashlyn L. Smith Hussman, Andrea Barton-Hulsey, and Nonye Nwosu provide clinicians with ammunition to deal with myths that families sometimes are prone to use when confronted with AAC. Both authors have provided excellent perspective on myths that continue to surround the field of AAC. Monitoring the posts on Special Interest Group (SIG) 12 Community it has become evident that this is a topic that needs to be addressed in a systematic manner which has been provided by these two authors.
