Some of you may remember the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's tag phrase, “two disciplines, one profession.” Audiology and speech-language pathology have shared a long history as the disciplines that, together, assess and treat communication sciences and disorders. As gerontology-focused professionals, we are particularly attuned to the connections between hearing, communication, and cognition. I was thrilled to be recently invited to present on the topic of cognitive changes associated with typical aging to a group of audiologists at the Maryland Academy of Audiology (MAA) annual conference. It was during that wonderfully interactive session that I was reminded of the importance of interprofessional collaboration between speech-language pathologists and audiologists. Therefore, I am particularly pleased to present this issue of Special Interest Group (SIG) 15, Perspectives on Gerontology focused on the topic of hearing loss and aural rehabilitation in older adults.
