Revolutionary Learning. Evolutionary Practice. November 15-17 Boston, MA

  • Program Planner

  • The Program Planner and mobile app provide advance access to the entire ASHA Convention program. Access and read session abstracts, author bios, and presenter disclosures, and plan how to spend each day to earn the most continuing education credit.

    Session materials—both the handouts uploaded prior to the Convention and final presentations (available after the Convention)—are accessible through the Program Planner and mobile app.

    Please contact us (papers@asha.org) if you have any questions. Please note that if you are using a tablet or smartphone to access the Program Planner, you will be prompted to download the mobile app from the Apple Store or Google Play when you select the Program Planner link.

    Mobile App

    Take the complete ASHA Convention program with you anywhere by downloading the app to your smartphone or tablet. The app integrates seamlessly with the desktop version of the Program Planner, so anything you save is viewable on both platforms after you create an account with your www.asha.org username and password.

    Access advance handouts and/or presentation slides (if shared by presenters), space to take session notes, exhibitor profiles, floor plans with a location finder, social media feeds, a shuttle tracker, and much more.

    Download the app for iOS or Android. (Use the links or search the Apple Store or Google Play for "ASHA Convention.")

    Handouts and Final Presentations/Session Materials

    Advance handouts, such as session outlines or references, are available through the Program Planner and mobile app. Final session materials, if presenters agree to publicly share their slides, will be available for viewing or downloading within two weeks of the conclusion of the Convention. To view these materials, search for a session within the Program Planner or mobile app, then select the title to open the full session details. If session materials have been shared, you will see links at the bottom of the session detail screen.

    Note: Session materials will only be available if the presenter(s) upload them or agree to share their final presentation slides. ASHA strongly encourages presenters to do so, but cannot make this a requirement as the material is the intellectual property of the presenter.

    Program Books and Other Program Resources

    Printed program books are not mailed in advance, but will be available to registrants at the Materials Pick-up area onsite in Boston. You may view the digital version of the official 2018 ASHA Convention program book on your desktop computer or tablet.
