Access the complete ASHA Convention program through the online Program Planner.
About the Planner
The Program Planner provides advance access to the complete ASHA Convention program. It allows you to browse, search, and sort all of the education sessions offered during the ASHA Convention—both oral seminars and poster presentations—using the search parameters that make the most sense to you. You can review author bios, as well as related presenter disclosures, and plan how to spend your day to earn the most continuing education credit. Session materials, both the handouts uploaded prior to the Convention and final presentations (available after the Convention), are accessible through the Program Planner. Most importantly, the Program Planner allows you to create your own detailed, personalized daily schedule of sessions that reflects your professional interests before arriving in Chicago.
How do I use the Program Planner?
You have two options:
2. Login to the Program Planner
This option allows you to search all sessions without logging into the Program Planner. You may conduct a detailed search by one or more of the following items in the search fields, and view your results in program layout or table layout. The default setting is the program layout.
- Session code
- Topic Area
- Instructional Level
- Special Audience
- Session Format
- Session Type
- Author Name
Here is an example of an effective search:
Type "autism" in the keyword search box, and select "Search". A listing of every session with "autism" in the title and abstract will appear in the search results displayed below the search panel. The word "autism" will be highlighted in each session listed.
You can narrow down the results of your keyword search by using a combination of the other search choices in the menu. For example, you may view only intermediate level poster presentations related to autism on Thursday.
Once the list of sessions appears below the red and blue tabs, you can select the title of each session to read the full session details in a pop up box.
Login to the Program Planner
To use this option, you must sign in through the ASHA Web site. If you do not have an account through www.asha.org, you may create one.
This option allows you to search all sessions and then create personalized schedule by saving those that interest you. You may also view the sessions you’ve saved to your schedule and/or add more at a later date. You may either download your schedule to your Outlook calendar or print it. The printed version provides a brief session outline that includes the abstract and authors in addition to the title, date, time, and location.
Select the "Create my itinerary" link to conduct a more detailed search by one or more of the following items in the search fields, and view your results in program layout or table layout. The default setting is the program layout. To view the sessions in a table, select “View Results in Table Layout” before you click the search button.
View Session Details
Select the title of a session in your search results to open a pop-up box that provides the complete information for that session. You can review author bios and disclosure information, read the abstract for the session, view the learner outcomes, and review any materials uploaded by presenters. If you decide you would like to add a particular session to your personal schedule, you may do so by checking the box "Add to My Itinerary."
View Session Handouts and Final Presentations/Session Materials
We have received a number of inquiries regarding the slides shown by presenters during the ASHA Convention. The final presentations, if presenters agreed to publicly share their slides and materials, will be ready for download from the Program Planner in about three weeks, or by December 6.
Advance 3-page handouts uploaded by presenters prior to the Convention are currently accessible through the Program Planner. To view handouts or presentation materials, 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 advance handouts are only available if the presenter(s) have uploaded them.
