Invited and Jointly Developed Sessions

Some sessions feature presenters who have been specially invited to present on a topic by the Convention Program Committee, a Special Interest Group (SIG), or a Specialty Certification Board. Some Invited Sessions are a collaborative effort and are jointly developed by a combination of those entities.

The presenters of these sessions hold expertise on the topic or subject area of the session. Sessions featuring invited presenters are noted in the session descriptions. One-hour oral seminars are included with your registration and everyone is welcome to attend them; master classes are ticketed and carry an additional fee. SIG affiliates may be particularly interested in SIG-sponsored sessions.

Master Classes

Master Classes provide a more intensive, advanced learning opportunity for seasoned professionals or those whose work has a specialized focus. They are ticketed two-hour oral seminars that will only be presented in person at the ASHA Convention. Presentations are advanced-level and emphasize clinical applications and/or science backed by appropriate levels of evidence. Presenters, who are invited by the Convention Program Committee, demonstrate recognized expertise in their area and have experience presenting continuing professional education programs.
