Rapid, unprecedented global aging is one of the most significant demographic changes of this century. It has dramatically impacted the incidence and prevalence of dementia resulting from Alzheimer's disease (AD) and other dementias. Indeed, ASHA has identified persons with dementia as the fastest growing clinical population on caseloads of speech language pathologists (ASHA, 2005). This issue of Perspectives focuses on two important themes in assessment and management of dementia. The authors of the first two articles focus on adding to the literature on the clinical significance of evaluating linguistic communication in non-Alzheimer dementias. The authors of the next two articles expand our understanding of variables that impact communicative interactions with persons who have dementia, in individual and group intervention contexts.
