I want to begin by thanking the SIG 1 Committee for this opportunity to serve as the guest editor for Part 2 (the autism issue), and for being true to the journal's name by embracing varied perspectives. My view towards autism and disability has been shaped both by professional experience as a speech-language pathologist (SLP) and child language researcher, and also by personal experience as a parent of an autistic child. In recent years, I have been particularly influenced by literature within the field of disability studies and by first-person perspectives from autistic individuals. This background has led to two common themes that run throughout this set of papers.
