Over the past eight issues, I have used this column to point out some of the unique article formats found is AJSLP, and I have encouraged authors to take advantage of these special options. One available format that is common to most journals has been used very infrequently by authors: Letters to the Editor. This is extremely unfortunate, and I would like to see a dramatic change in this trend.
We need more letters from all corners of the profession, but I am especially interested in encouraging practicing clinicians to submit their responses to AJSLP articles as Letters to the Editor. Two of our formats, Second Opinion and Viewpoint, are essentially designed to evoke responses from our readers on matters of great clinical importance. Past Second Opinion issues have covered controversies from facilitated communication and auditory integration training to questions surrounding the initiation of treatment with children who are slow in acquiring words and word combinations, children who have begun to stutter, and stroke victims with aphasia. The strong conclusions and opinions voiced in these articles should have a major impact on clinical practice, and I believe all professionals would profit from hearing how the positions and suggestions expressed in these articles have influenced clinicians’ performance (for better or worse).
