Convention Program

The comprehensive and detailed schedule of all education sessions offered at the ASHA Convention—both oral seminars and poster presentations—is searchable through the Program Planner online scheduling tool. The Program Planner serves as both the advance Convention program and your own personal scheduler.

Call for Papers

Notifications of acceptance and non-acceptance for proposals submitted to the Call for Papers for the 2015 ASHA Convention were sent via e-mail on July 15, 2015. Please contact papers@asha.org if you did not receive a notification or have any questions related to the Call for Papers or Program.

Schedule at a Glance

The Schedule at a Glance provides an overview of what will be happening each day during the ASHA Convention.

Pre-Convention Sessions

The Colorado Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (CSHA) is sponsoring several CEU-eligible sessions on Wednesday, November 11, 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Choose from one of the three sessions and extend your learning at the ASHA Convention. Read more about the pre-Convention sessions, or use the session codes to locate and view the complete details for these sessions, including abstracts, authors, and learning objectives, in the Program Planner (coming in August).

PC01: Spelling Error Analysis: A Clinical Tool for Assessing & Planning Intervention for Reading & Writing

PC02: Bilingual Speakers with Aphasia: Evidence, Principles, & Procedures in Clinical Management

PC03: Speech & Resonance Intervention for Cleft Palate: Speech Therapy Approaches Related to Surgical Timelines

PC04: Concussion Reconsidered in Children, Adolescents & Young Adults: New Science, New Roles for SLPs

Tickets for the sessions may be purchased through registration. You may purchase tickets to attend a pre-Convention session even if you do not plan to attend the Convention itself, however, you’ll still need to complete the full Convention registration process. To do so, log into the registration system and select the "Wednesday Only" option for $0, which will allow you to add tickets for the Wednesday sessions. You will pay only for the session you select, and will not be registered for the ASHA Convention, which begins on Thursday.

Short Courses

Attendance at your choice of more than 2,000 oral seminars and poster presentations is included with your ASHA Convention registration, however, you may also choose to purchase tickets to Short Courses.

Short Courses are 3-hour ticketed sessions with an additional fee of $80 for attendance. They offer more in-depth content presented at the intermediate level or above and are led by presenters who hold expertise in the subject matter. Tickets for Short Courses may be purchased through Convention registration.

View the 2015 Short Courses.

Program Book

Each registrant will receive a copy of the Program Book at the Materials Pick-up area onsite in Denver. View the digital copy of the official 2014 ASHA Convention Program Book on your computer or mobile device.

General Expectations for Sessions Offered at the ASHA Convention

  • 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.
