Schools Connect 

ASHA Schools Connect 2018

It's Where You Belong  

July 20–22, 2018 | Baltimore Convention Center | Baltimore, Maryland

Your students inspire you every day, but sometimes you need to recharge and connect with SLPs who experience your same challenges and share your passion for working with children. At Schools Connect, best-in-class presenters offer relevant and practical tools to take back to your school and implement with your students immediately.

Plus, Schools Connect is co-located with Health Care Connect and Private Practice Connect, so you can build your customized learning experience. Feel free to cross over and attend sessions from the other conferences that pique your interest.

Why Attend?

Here's what last year's attendees had to say:

"This was a great conference for school-based SLPs. I learned something new at every session and was able to connect with colleagues I haven't seen for a while."
Valorie L. Andrews, MA, CCC-SLP
"I learned a lot of practical ideas that can be implemented immediately in the real world. I also liked the fact that Schools Connect was co-located with Health Care Connect and Private Practice Connect, so I could attend sessions outside my work setting."
Sarah Knudsen, MS, CCC-SLP
