We’re preparing for all scenarios this coming year and are planning the 2021 ASHA Convention as a hybrid in-person/virtual event. Some of the activities or aspects of the event listed on this page are tentative and subject to change. Some may be moved to a virtual format or may need to be cancelled as we move forward in our planning, so please be sure to check back for updates. We appreciate your patience as we adapt to a hybrid format.

Sessions for Students

The Program Planner and mobile app allow you to search by topic to find sessions that interest you. You can also search by special audience to find sessions identified by the Convention Program Committee to be of interest to students; filter by instructional level to find introductory sessions; or search by author to locate presentations by faculty or fellow students whom you know.
