Somehow it's July already, another academic/school year is behind us and we are heading towards mid-summer with fall soon to follow. Through it all, your SIG 5 coordinating committee (CC) has been hard at work focusing on initiatives and activities to enhance the benefits offered to you as SIG 5 affiliates. We are pleased with our accomplishments and we hope you are too.
Editor Adriane Baylis and associate editor, James Dembrowski continue their work to ensure relevant and timely publications of the two issues of Perspectives this year. This issue offers five unique articles covering a variety of topics. David Zajac begins with a discussion of the nature of nasal fricatives, followed by Jordan Green, 2014 Zemlin Named Lecture awardee, who provides a summary of his lecture given at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Convention in Orlando that was titled, “Mouth Matters: Scientific and Clinical Applications of Speech Movement Analysis.” James Dembrowski provides us with a third speech science submission that introduces acoustic analysis of speech in children with fetal alcohol syndrome. All three of these articles offer continuing education units (CEUs) so take advantage of this interesting reading and low-cost opportunity. Clinically speaking, Kris Wilson and Scott Dailey provide their insights and recommendations for communicating with the cleft palate team and improving coordinated care across treatment settings, while Sally Peterson-Falzone shares her knowledge and experience to educate and encourage us to volunteer on behalf of the many individuals with cleft palate/craniofacial anomalies in underserved regions of the world. The forthcoming October 2015 issue of Perspectives will also have a blend of speech science and craniofacial topics and will include a special review article on surgical management of velopharyngeal dysfunction.
