This paper addresses collaboration between professionals in the fields of speech-language pathology and applied behavior analysis (SLP and ABA). Although the fields of SLP and ABA each address a wide range of different concerns, they share an interest in supporting individuals with communication impairments. However, despite this significant area of overlap, the history of collaboration between these professionals has varied markedly over the past 50 years. This paper provides (a) a historical sketch of events that have led to renewed interest in collaboration among professionals within these fields. (b) the advantages of collaboration, and (c) suggestions for ways to strengthen current levels of collaboration in the service of individuals with communication impairments.
