Program Planner

Download the ASHA Convention mobile app to take the program with you on your phone or tablet.

The Program Planner and mobile app are the tools you will use to view the entire ASHA Convention program—both the in-person sessions offered at the ASHA Convention in Washington, D.C. and the pre-recorded virtual sessions offered through the Virtual Library. There will not be a printed program book or exhibit guide distributed onsite this year.

The planner and the app allow you to browse sessions, read session descriptions and author bios, and view presenter disclosures. You can create an account to save sessions you want to attend (or watch) to your personal schedule. Session materials, such as handouts, are also accessed through the Program Planner and mobile app.

For questions or issues relating to the Program Planner or ASHA Convention program sessions, email us at papers@asha.org.

How To Use the Program Planner

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

  • Audience
  • Instructional Level
  • Invited Sessions
  • Session Focus
  • Session Format
  • Time of Day
  • Topic Area

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 Find 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 (master classes, 1-hour oral seminars, technical sessions and the pre-recorded portion of poster presentations) are all listed under the November 15 date tab. You will find the live, virtual poster Q&A sessions listed on November 18 and November 19.

You can also identify whether a session is offered in-person or virtually by the session code. In-person sessions have a four-digit session code. Virtual Library sessions have a five-digit session code ending in the letter V or L. Pre-recorded session codes end in the letter V. The live, virtual poster Q&A session codes end in the letter L. Pre-recorded poster presentations and their corresponding live Q&A sessions will 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 www.asha.org 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.

Floor Plans

The floor plans for the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and the Marriott Marquis Washington, D.C. [PDF] are available to help you orient yourself and plan your schedule. You can find them in the Program Planner and the mobile app. The mobile app has a way finder feature that will route you to session rooms and other Convention locations.

Handouts and Session Materials

In-person presenters are encouraged to upload handouts, such as a session outline, agenda or a reference list, in advance of their presentation. To view these materials, search for a session within the Program Planner or mobile app, then select the title to open the full session details. If handouts or materials have been shared, you will see links at the bottom of the session detail screen.

Alternate Search Tool
