NSSHLA at UT Austin

The National Student Speech, Language, and Hearing Association (NSSLHA) is an organization intended to connect and promote student leadership in the Speech Language and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) world.

We are the UT NSSLHA chapter, located in the Moody College of Communication. We represent the three pillars of Advocacy, Service, and Membership. Our Advocacy efforts are shown each year, as our members pass out earplugs on campus, to attendees of Austin Music festivals— Austin City Limits and South by Southwest! Our members have the chance each year to attend the Texas Speech-Language and Hearing Association’s annual Convention. This is a great networking event with Speech Language Pathologists, Audiologists, and Healthcare professionals. In addition to attending presentations on the latest research in SLHS, we have volunteered and attended sessions for the TSHA Political Action Committee.

UT NSSLHA has established a defining partnership with Austin Speech Labs, a local stroke survivor recovery clinic. Volunteers dedicate significant hours each week in assisting with the recovery of speech, language, and cognitive rehabilitation of clients who have survived a stroke. Our chapter is also participating with a Harvard-based organization, Vocal ID. The organization aims at donating a voice to Alternative and Augmentative Communication users.

Our Membership events are strong, and many friendships have been made through UT NSSLHA. If you’re interested in meeting students in your SLH courses, we’d love to have you.
