Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
Finally, the CAC Classics offer a unique opportunity to link the past history of clinical aphasiology to its future. Rogers and colleagues point out the ``irony'' that exists in clinical aphasiology today (Rogers, Alarcon, & Olswang, 1999). This is that there is ample existing research to demonstrate the benefits of language treatment for aphasia, but no funds to pay for language treatment. Understandably, the future of clinical aphasiology rests in the hands or brains of its young clinician-scientists. Herein, the CAC plays an important role. Historically, the CAC has included young clinician-scientists in its meetings. Currently, a programme grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH) provides support for young researchers to attend the CAC meeting, share their research, and interact with those who have ``paved the way''. To bridge the gap between the past and the future, clinician-scientists just beginning their research careers have been teamed up with the original authors of the earlier papers for publication of the CAC Classics.
