What is NSSLHA?
NSSLHA stands for The National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association, which is an association for students interested in the field of Speech Language Pathology and/or Audiology.  NSSLHA is an affiliate of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) which is the professional, scientific, and credentialing association for more than 127,000 members and affiliates who are audiologists, speech-language pathologists, and speech, language, and hearing scientists. NSSLHA membership provides benefits that help students stay current on advancements in the field, enhance their academic knowledge, find internships and employment, service the speech & hearing disordered community, network with other students with similar interests, and save money on products and services. NSSLHA has over 300 independently operated chapters located on college campuses and universities in the United States and worldwide.  Having a NSSLHA chapter on your campus ensures that a student will have access to resources and information to succeed in the field of audiology, speech-pathology, and speech-hearing research.
