Dear Affiliates,
Welcome spring! As I write this column, it is late December and I can only hope that by the time this issue goes live on ASHAwire, we have had a mild winter and spring flowers are starting to bloom. Spring is a time of renewal and fresh thinking! You are certain to find some new ideas in this issue of Perspectives which focuses on the topic of gestures. Our guest editor, Lori Foran, has invited a terrific set of authors to detail the relationship of gesture use and language development and the clinical implications of this relationship for speech-language pathologists. As Lori notes, “Gesture serves as a means of expressing and externalizing one's thoughts and gestures often provide insight into what a child thinks and understands even before expressive language skills emerge.” Lori has asked her authors to “share their expertise regarding gesture's role in language learning and thinking in typically developing children and in children with language impairment.”
