The Schedule at a Glance provides an overview of each day's events. 

Welcome from the Convention Co-Chairs

The Convention Co-Chair for Audiology, Mark DeRuiter, and the Convention Co-Chair for Speech-Language Pathology, Edie Hapner, welcome you to the 2022 ASHA Convention and explain our theme, "Reframe Your Thinking: Resilience Reinvented." In partnership with the Convention Program Committee, they are working to offer a wide array of sessions to meet the continuing education needs of communication sciences and disorders professionals.

About the Program

The ASHA Convention is the strongest educational program for audiologists, speech-language pathologists, speech and hearing scientists, and related professionals.

We are continuing with the hybrid in-person/virtual event format again this year where our traditional in-person convention in New Orleans will be paired with the Virtual Library of pre-recorded, on-demand sessions. All education sessions are eligible for ASHA Continuing Education Credit or professional development hours

Program Topic Areas

The education program covers 31 topic areas related to the professions.

Session Formats

We learned some things about what worked and what didn’t work from our experience last year and have modified the in-person and virtual session formats:

  • Master Classes (2 hours, live, in-person/onsite; ticketed)
  • Oral Seminars (1 hour; live, in-person/onsite or pre-recorded/virtual)
  • Technical Research and Technical Clinical Sessions (30 minutes; live, in-person/onsite or pre-recorded/virtual)
  • In-Person Poster Presentations (15-minute pre-recorded audio presentation and digital poster on the virtual platform, plus onsite, in-person 90-minute Q&A session with digital poster display)
  • Virtual-ONLY Poster Presentations (15-minute pre-recorded audio presentation and digital poster on the virtual platform; no Q&A session)

Read the full description of each session format offered at the ASHA Convention.

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 in New Orleans. 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. View the list of master classes to be offered this year.

Tickets are $50 each, but SIG members may purchase tickets for SIG-sponsored master classes for only $25 each. Tickets for the ASHFoundation Master Class (MC06) are free to all but must be reserved. Tickets may be purchased through registration.

Pre-Convention Workshops

Kickstart your experience at the in-person ASHA Convention with pre-convention workshops that will take place on Wednesday, November 16, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $80 each and may be purchased through registration.
