Using This Site
How do I register to get access to member content on the ASHA website?
Website visitors who wish to create a username and password for asha.org are required to supply a valid e-mail address when they register. With your e-mail address, we can
- send you a password reminder if you happen to forget your password;
- send you notifications related to your subscriptions to various portions of the ASHA website;
- contact you for administrative purposes relative to your web account and/or changes to ASHA's web-based services.
ASHA will not share your e-mail address with other companies. Communications considered to be member benefits (such as electronic newsletters) may be sent to you on an opt-out basis. All other communications will be strictly opt-in: you will receive only those you've elected to subscribe to.
You can register your account by using online form. Enter your ASHA account number (included on the ASHA membership card and most correspondence from ASHA) and last name to begin the registration process. NSSLHA members should use their NSSLHA account number. Once registration has been completed, you will be able to log into www.asha.org.
What is my password?
To ensure your privacy, we do not keep passwords on file. To retrieve a lost password, please visit the Forgot Password Help page. You will need to enter either your e-mail address or ASHA account number. If either matches an account in the ASHA database, we will send a message to your e-mail address with instructions on how to reset the password for your account.
How do I change my password or username?
To change your password or username, visit the Update Account page.
I selected the "Forgot your password?" link, but I never got instructions about how to set a new password.
Password reset e-mails are typically sent out immediately. If you don't receive a speedy response, please check your spam folder to make sure the message did not end up there by accident. If you are using a business e-mail address, you can also check with your IT/Technical Support department to ensure e-mails from email@example.com are not being filtered out by your employer's server. If no filters are in place, please contact us, and we will help you reset your password.
