News & Announcements

  • NSLHA's Schools-Based Issues Committee is working on behalf of members by developing SLI verification guidelines, telepractice guidelines, will be addressing workload/caseload issues, and met on December 12th with the Nebraska Department of Education to discuss continuing education requirements for SLPs wanting to work in Nebraska as well as universal licensure.

  • Utah State University is conducting a study to learn more about school psychologists’ and school-based audiologists’ and speech-language pathologists’ knowledge of ASD and confidence in providing school-based services with this population. If you work in a school setting, please complete this brief survey by mid-March. Participants will be entered in a separate drawing for the chance to win one of two $50 Amazon gift cards.

  • Free onsite and distance continuing education conference for professionals.

  • Hear the State of the Association address from 2017-18 NSLHA President Marc Brennan.

  • NSLHA's vision is to be the leading voice and partner in promoting speech, language, hearing, balance, swallowing and related disorders in Nebraska, and to be an expert in advocating for the rights and interests of persons with communication disorders. Join or renew your membership today.

  • A major role that state associations play is as an advocacy organization. Associations monitor proposed legislation, identify bills that may have a positive or negative impact on the field of communication sciences and disorders and the individuals we serve, and develop advocacy agendas to address those bills. A large unified voice such as a state association can be key to successful advocacy.
