Part 3 of Perspectives is a unique issue in that it applies the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) to users of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). Travis Threats, the guest editor of this issue, has succinctly summarized the three articles that comprise this issue. Rupal Patel’s article entitled “One's Voice: A Central Component of Personal Factors in AAC” highlights the creation of customized voices for AAC devices. Assessment of cultural competence in AAC assessment and intervention is reviewed by Danai Kasambira Fanin in her article, “The Intersection of Culture and ICF-CY Personal and Environmental Factors for Child Alternative and Augmentative Communication.” In her article titled “Shared Responsibilities for Full Participation in Society: Planning Further Integration of the ICF into AAC,” Mary Blake Huer looks at addressing human rights of inclusion of individuals who use AAC into society with the assistance of intervention by speech-language pathologists.
