Research Policy

Researchers and students who wish to request NSLHA members' participation in research projects are asked to submit basic information regarding their research project, its protocol, any benefit to subjects, funding sources, and approval from an institutional review board (IRB). An IRB is the overseeing body charged with ensuring protection of human subjects in research.

The information provided will be submitted to NSLHA's President for review and determination of approval for posting. The sole purpose of posting subject recruitment notices is to inform members of NSLHA about ongoing research and to do so in a responsible manner. Any decision of NSLHA members to participate will be based on their contact with the researchers themselves; the posting of the information on the NSLHA website does not constitute endorsement by NSLHA, or its Board of Directors. Research requests will not be sent out via email. Members may visit the NSLHA website for information about research requests.

News & Announcements

  • The Nebraska Speech-Language-Hearing Association has experienced several recent legislative and regulatory advocacy accomplishments, and wanted to share with you the ongoing work being done for members in our state. Listen to this recording for more information.

  • 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.

  • The Fall Convention brings together audiologists, speech-language pathologists and students from around the state who are looking for the best products and services available for their schools, hospitals, universities and private practices. Sponsorships help enhance the visibility and recognition of your company or organization while supporting the speech-language-hearing profession. Exhibitors also have the opportunity to offer continuing education at their booths.
