We are pleased to offer you six excellent articles in this issue of Perspectives, which is a joint effort between Division 1 (Language Learning and Education) and Division 14. If your work includes children with autism, the article by Cromwell, Belgum, and Kohnert entitled, “Diversity and Autism,” will be very valuable. We are always searching for new intervention techniques to use with our clients who are from culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) backgrounds. “Determining Directions for Speech-Language Intervention in Native Communities” by Inglebret and Harrison can offer you practical information in this area. Speech and language intervention strategies that can be used with bilingual children are presented in three articles, one by Gildersleeve-Neumann, entitled “A Framework for Speech Sound Intervention in a Bilingual Child”; a second by Restrepro, entitled “The Case for Bilingual Intervention for Typical and Atypical Language Learners”; and the third by Thordardottir, entitled “Language Intervention From a Bilingual Mindset.” The final article in this issue, by Smyer and Westby takes a look at psychosocial aspects of children from CLD backgrounds through literacy: “Using Children's Literature to Promote Positive Self-Identity in Culturally/Linguistically Diverse Students.” (References and tables associated with these articles are accessible on the affiliates-only pages of the Division Web site www.asha.org/about/membership-certification/divs/div_14.htm).
