Program Planner

The Program Planner and ASHA Convention mobile app serve as our official program. For questions about the Program Planner, mobile app, or ASHA Convention program sessions, email us at

Program Planner

The Program Planner is a web-based search and scheduling tool. Use it to preview all of the sessions—both in-person and virtual—offered at the ASHA Convention, browse exhibitor profiles, and build a personal schedule of sessions you want to attend. The 2024 Program Planner will be available in late July. (View the 2023 Program Planner.)

ASHA Convention Mobile App

The ASHA Convention mobile app is available in the Apple App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android) to download to your phone or tablet. The mobile app also lists all sessions and exhibitor profiles, but has many additional features to help with your experience onsite at the ASHA Convention.

If you already have the mobile app installed on your phone or tablet, touch the "Exit to App List"  button on the home screen. You will then be able to download the current version of the app from the list of events.

How To Use the Program Planner

You may browse the Program Planner and app without signing in, but you will need to log in with your username and password if you want to save sessions or exhibitors to your schedule.

Use any of the following filters under Sessions in the left menu area to customize your search:

  • Date or Time
  • Topic Area
  • Session Format
  • Instructional Level (Introductory, Intermediate, Advanced)
  • In-person or Virtual
  • Session Focus (Professional Education or Research)
  • Special Session Designation (i.e., Meritorious Poster, Visionary Series, Invited Presenter, etc.)
  • Audience (i.e., Researchers, Students, Assistants, etc.)

Or, use the search bar in the upper right to quickly locate a session by title, session code, or keyword. Then, filter your results by day using the tabs across the top. Additional filter options in the left menu allow you to find authors or exhibitors, and you can also view the Exhibit Hall floor plan to see where companies will be located.

View Session Details

Select the title of a session in your search results to read the description of the session, review author bios and disclosure information, view the learner outcomes, and review any materials uploaded by presenters.

Create a Personal Schedule

To save sessions to your schedule, use your username and password to log into the planner or app, then select the black calendar icon that appears next to the session title to add it to your schedule. The Program Planner and the mobile app sync, so if you save sessions to your schedule in the planner, they will also appear in the app if you are signed in, and vice versa.

Handouts and Session Materials

Presenters of oral seminars are asked to provide handouts, such as a session outline, agenda, or reference list, in advance of their presentation. To view session materials, search for a session within the Planner or app, then select the title to open the full session details. If presenters shared their handouts or presentation materials, you will see links at the bottom of the session detail screen in the Program Planner, or a "Handouts" tab in the session details screen in the app.

Special Session Designations

When searching the program with the Program Planner or mobile app, use the filters to see lists of these special sessions.

Invited Presenter 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 Presenter Sessions are a collaborative effort and are jointly developed by a combination of those entities. SIG affiliates may be particularly interested in SIG-sponsored sessions.

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 featuring invited presenters are included with your registration and everyone is welcome to attend them. All 2-hour Short Courses feature invited presenters and are ticketed with an additional fee.

Meritorious Posters

The Convention Program Committee selects Meritorious Posters, a special designation for proposals they have judged to be exceptional during their review process.

Visionary Series

The Visionary Session series, selected by the Convention Program Committee, focuses on transformative research or clinical work that has dramatically elevated the practices or future research, contributing to new best practices, new evidence, or reframing the thought paradigms of the professions. These innovative practices or research demonstrate the potential to make an important or significant positive increase in outcomes based on strong evidence at the patient, system, or discipline level.

DEI, Ethics, and Supervision Credits

Plan ahead to meet DEI, Ethics, and Supervision certification requirements. When searching the Program Planner for sessions you’d like to attend, use the ASHA Certification Requirement filters to locate sessions that count toward the ASHA certification maintenance requirements for DEI, Ethics and Supervision. These sessions/credits will be marked on your event report. Learn more about these newly added credit types.

Program Archives

You may view the Program Planners from past ASHA Conventions in the Archives section at the bottom of the About the Convention webpage. To view the apps from past years, go to Settings in the current app, then select Exit to App list and select the year you would like to download.
