Health and Safety Practices and Procedures

Our goal is to help you feel confident about participating at the in-person ASHA Convention in New Orleans. We will be updating our Health and Safety Practices and Procedures page as we finalize our policies for this year.

Mobility and Accessibility

When registering, you will have the opportunity to indicate that you need accommodations relating to mobility, hearing, vision, or other areas while onsite. An ASHA staff person will reach out to discuss your individual needs. We ask that requests for reasonable accommodations be made as early as possible, and well in advance of the event, so we may best accommodate needs and requirements. Late or onsite requests will be accommodated to the best of our ability, however, available resources may be limited. If you have any questions about mobility or accessibility onsite, please send an email to accessevents@asha.org.

Scooter rentals are available for $60/day through the UPS Store/Business Center located in the convention center. Learn more and reserve a scooter [PDF].

An ADA-accessible shuttle equipped with a wheelchair lift will be available to transport attendees with mobility issues from the convention center to the ASHA hotels and to any official ASHA offsite event (i.e., ASHFoundation Fundraiser or the ASHA PAC Reception). Individuals who use scooters can use the standard shuttle service; shuttle staff will help stow scooters in the cargo area of the bus. To arrange for ADA shuttle service while onsite, call 1-800-523-4046 and allow 45 minutes from call time for pickup.
