How Online Conferences Work
"I appreciate the ability to expand my understanding and clinical abilities without having to take time off and pay for a flight, hotel, and other extras."
"What a great and interactive way to facilitate learning directly from colleagues and presenters."
You're bound to love attending an ASHA Professional Development online conference! Online conferences are:
- Convenient. Listen to sessions whenever and wherever—even on mobile devices!
- Comprehensive. Get relevant, apply-today information and techniques that will help you work with those you serve better than before.
- Concise. These short, 1-hour sessions easily fit in your schedule!
- Effortless. Relax—there's no test! Sit back, listen to the lectures, participate in the live chats, and earn plenty of ASHA CEUs or professional development hours!
Plus, you'll have access to lectures, discussions, course handouts, presenters, and other participants—all without the trouble and expense of travel. All you need is a device with Internet access.

ASHA Professional Development online conferences include:

- A discussion thread related to each lecture. Post your comments and questions, and get reactions from other conference participants and presenters.
- Live, text-based chats with presenters. During these scheduled 1-hour chats, you can interact directly with
- Handouts and other resources. Download and print or save handouts, as well as related resource documents, from all the lectures.
- Networking opportunities. Post a professional profile and find others with similar professional interests and specialties.
