Membership

Become a member or renew your NSLHA membership. NSLHA's membership year is September 1 - August 31.

Note: If you join for the first time during the third or fourth quarter of the fiscal year, your dues are pro-rated. If you complete the paper version of the membership application, calculate your pro-rated dues amount by taking the total amount of dues and dividing it by 12. The remaining number of months left in the current fiscal year is your dues amount. If you join online during the third quarter or fourth quarter, the pro-rated dues amount is automatically calculated for you.

NSLHA membership allows all of us to be a collective voice in impacting and influencing public policy and regulations at the state and federal levels. Through NSLHA, we can continue to enhance our skills as audiologists or speech-language pathologists through education opportunities, NSLHA Connects (our member only Facebook group), through our Facebook page, and by connecting at regional events. We can also share our clinical specialty with fellow members, to help all of us grow professionally. All of these membership benefits help us to make new friends and contacts to support one another in our profession.

  • This webinar will include an overview of the current Nebraska Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) proposed plan, along with the role of SLPs in schools. Current national topics will be discussed including: telepractice, SLPAs, universal licensure, dyslexia and caseload vs. workload. Next steps in collaborating with the Nebraska Department of Education on these issues and current eligibility criteria for speech and/or language impairment will also be discussed.

  • Colleagues, we are hoping that you will agree to take a very short survey regarding augmentative and alternative communication and therapy in aphasia. The aim of the survey is to find out more about how speech-language pathologists describe and use AAC in aphasia therapy. We have purposely not included our own definition of AAC because we want to hear your ideas first. If you are willing to help with the survey, please click on the link above or paste the link into your browser to go to the web-based survey. After completing the survey, you may choose to enter a drawing to win a $25 gift card.

  • Join your peers at the Nebraska Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s Fall Convention on September 14-15, 2017 at the Cornhusker Marriott in Lincoln, NE to learn, collaborate, share, network and socialize. Up to 1.35 ASHA CEUs are available.
