  • 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.
