These words were written by a speech-language pathologist some 25 years ago. They seem to reflect what I would have to believe is the desire of basic and applied communication scientists and clinical practitioners alike… to make a difference.

In 1990, in response to our Association’s recognized need for a scholarly journal with an entirely applied perspective, six Associate Editors and I gathered at the ASHA office and began to crystallize the form of what it should be. These outstanding clinical scientists were Marty Adams, Kevin Kearns, Steve McFarlane, Nicki Nelson, Jeanne Wilcox, and David Yoder.
