The ASHA, American Speech-Language-Hearing Association is the professional, scientific, and credentialing association for 140,000 members and affiliates who are speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and speech, language, and hearing scientists in the United States and internationally.
Making effective communication, a human right, accessible and achievable for all.
Empowering and supporting speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and speech, language, and hearing scientists by:

This year's Convention theme, "Leadership into New Frontiers," will help us focus on what we need to do as professionals to make a difference in the lives of those we serve. Knowing that leadership is not positional, we hope the Convention will help each person discover her/his potential for leadership in every day work and living. Under the guidance of program co-chairs, Shari Robertson and Tony Cacace, the Program Committee is working hard on program sessions with innovative speakers and topics that can meet the varied interests of ASHA members.
