Why Should Students Join an ASHA Special Interest Group?

  • Network! You get 24/7 access to a vibrant online community of seasoned professionals working in just the area that you’re interested in. Take a free video tour of the SIG communities! Plus, meet up with your SIG colleagues at Convention and other ASHA conferences—each SIG hosts an affiliates meeting. Collaborate, ask for advice, learn, share your insights and experience—it’s up to you!
  • Learn! Stay ahead of the game with Perspectives. The latest research and controversies, insightful analysis of key issues, and indispensable reviews—they’re all at your fingertips with Perspectives, the exclusive online periodicals for the Special Interest Groups. By joining one SIG, you gain access to read Perspectives for all 19 SIGs—meaning that your own CSD library now includes more than 2,500 archived articles and over 200 new articles published annually! Read a sampling of Perspectives articles from all 19 SIGs.
  • Save! For a $10/SIG annual fee, you receive special discounts on select Short Courses at the ASHA Convention and on registration fees for ASHA’s Health Care / Business Institute and Schools conferences! The SIG annual fee pays for itself!
