Welcome to the October issue of Perspectives!. It is once again a privilege to provide you with articles that are written by the foremost experts in their respective areas of speech science and orofacial disorders.
Our first article is a magnificent review of embryogenesis of the speech and hearing apparatus that could only be written by one person, and that person is G. H. Sperber, a true scholar in craniofacial biology. Given the ongoing quest to develop and use cutting-edge technology to noninvasively study the structures related to speech and swallowing, our second article by Tim Bressman provides a superb tutorial on ultrasound and its application to assess lingual, pharyngeal, and laryngeal structures. In the last article, Debbie Sell concludes her two-part series about speech-language pathology issues in the developing world with a presentation of service delivery models that have been developed to provide speech treatment to individuals with cleft lip and palate living in Third World countries. This is a valuable resource to the clinician who is interested in participating on a visiting team. I also am pleased to include in this issue a book review by Ellen Cohn and Matthew Ford.
