UWM Chapter: National Student Speech Language Hearing Association

The National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) is the organization for undergraduate and graduate students interested in the study of normal and disordered human communication behavior. Students may join the UWM campus chapter and/or the national organization which is affiliated with the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). Members of the NSSLHA receive several journals and a reduction in dues the year they initially join ASHA. The campus chapter provides opportunities to network with other students, socialize, provide service through fundraising events and learn more about the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology. Clinical Assistant Professor Susan Yorio and Clinical Associate Professor Patricia Willis are the advisors for the NSSLHA.
