Following are some highlights of what's new this year: 

  • Gene therapy will be the focus of this year’s Research Symposium on Hearing
  • Quiet Study Rooms Since this year's ASHA Convention falls at the end of the semester when many students and educators are taking or administering exams, we have set aside rooms at our co-leadership hotels for quiet study or testing. The rooms will have Wi-Fi and power strips to plug in devices but will not be staffed or monitored. Check out the Convention website for more details on where these are located 
  • Closing General SessionGather for the last session of the day on Saturdayto recap the best moments of this year’s event with the Convention Co-Chairs. They will then welcome a special keynote speaker to leave you newly inspired as you return home after three days of learning and connecting. Closing out the journey will be a special kick-off for ASHA’s 100th Anniversary in 2025.
