Convention Program

The Call for Papers has closed. The deadline to submit a proposal was April 4, 2017, 11:59 p.m., Pacific Time. Notifications of acceptance/non-acceptance will be sent to all authors via e-mail no later than July 20, 2017. Please contact if you have any questions about the Call for Papers or the ASHA Convention Program.

The ASHA Convention is the strongest educational program for speech-language pathologists, audiologists, speech and hearing scientists, and related professionals. The complete 2017 program will be available for viewing through the online Program Planner in late July.

Program Planner

You may still view the 2016 program through the online Program Planner. Use it to search for sessions and read abstracts, author bios, learner objectives, presenter disclosures, and access handouts/session materials.

To view advance handouts or final presentation slides (if presenters agreed to publicly share their slides and materials when uploading their presentations in the Speaker Ready Room onsite at the ASHA Convention), select the title of the session to open a window with the full session details. If materials have been uploaded, you will see a link next to the presenter's name. Please keep in mind that handouts and final presentations are only available if the presenter(s) have uploaded them in advance or granted permission to share their slides.

General Expectations for Sessions Offered at the ASHA Convention

Education sessions at the ASHA Convention are noncommercial. It is not acceptable to use an education session to advertise a program, product, or service for sale.

  • The views that speakers express in education sessions are their own, and do not necessarily reflect ASHA's policies.
  • ASHA does not endorse programs, products, or services. Acceptance of a paper for presentation does not constitute ASHA's endorsement of its content.
  • Speakers are expected to refrain from comments or humor that disparages the rightful dignity of any person or group.
  • Speakers are expected to comply with copyright law and HIPAA regulations in selecting material and images for their presentations. In particular, speakers are cautioned against using images or identifying details of any client or patient without express written permission to do so.
