Welcome, Special Interest Group (SIG) 10 affiliates, to the 2017 issue of Perspectives! The new format for Perspectives has been in place for several months now, and readers are getting used to seeing new content being published throughout the year. Recently, SIG 10 published an article that described a working model of interprofessional education and interprofessional practice in speech-language pathology and audiology and an article on how university educators can foster critical thinking skills in students. These articles are easily accessible in our 2016 issue.
Perspectives begins each new year by launching a new issue, and this provides me with an opportunity to offer you a preview of some of the articles that SIG 10 will be publishing in the future. SIG 10 will publish several themed articles intended to help higher education professionals prepare future clinicians to address the voice and communication needs of transgender clients. The guest editor for this theme is Patrick R. Walden. The articles planned will address many topics: voice, speech, and resonance as factors in transgender communication interventions; a conceptual framework of the “ownership” of the voice change process; applying motor learning theory to transgender voice modification; how standards of care are applied to the health-care needs of transgender clients; building voice and communication training into a university clinic and how this service benefits students and the transgender community; and first-person accounts from transgender individuals who have completed speech-language pathology graduate programs. In sum, articles in the issue will address preparing students for clinical practice, review evidence that informs practice, and offer suggestions for developing therapy methods for transgender communication services.
