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:

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.

How to Identify Virtual or In-Person Sessions

Filter by session format to browse only sessions offered in-person, or only virtual sessions. Each session format is noted as virtual or in-person. Pre-recorded virtual sessions (1-hour oral seminars, technical sessions and poster presentations) are all listed under the November 10 date tab.

You can also identify whether a session is offered in-person or virtually by the session code. All sessions have a five-digit session code ending in the letter V or L. Pre-recorded session codes end in the letter V. In-person session codes end in the letter L. Pairs of in-person and virtual poster presentations begin with the same four numbers so you can find the pair.

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. Handouts for in-person sessions will be available through the Program Planner and mobile app beginning in late October. To view them, 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.

Handouts for virtual sessions will be accessible through the Virtual Library.

Alternate Search Tool

If you'd like a printable list of sessions, you may use our alternate program search tool. Select table view to export your search results to Excel.

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.
