NSSLHA Information


WHAT IS NSSLHA?

It is the National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association. It is the student branch of ASHA, which is the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. We have an MTSU Chapter of NSSLHA, but please realize that dues are two separate payments.

WHY SHOULD I JOIN NSSLHA?

NSSLHA offers a variety of reason for students to join. A few reason include journal subscriptions to Contemporary Issues in Communication and Science Disorders (CICSD), The ASHA Leader, News & Notes (NSSLHA's newsletter), and a choice of one other journal. Membership also allows access to the 'member only' sites found within the ASHA Website, which contains numerous online journals. NSSLHA offers financial help for its members. For example, as a member of NSSHLA, the registration for the ASHA convention is reduced. Also, the transition fee between NSSHLA-to-ASHA is reduced drastically the first year.
