The National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLAH) serves pre-professionals in all communication sciences and disorders fields, having both national membership and local chapters. The local University of Houston NSSLHA chapter is a stellar example of student leadership and involvement for future audiologists, speech language pathologists, and speech language pathology assistants.
UH NSSLHA members participate in many activities which support their community engagement, professional knowledge, and personal growth. Our UH NSSLHA chapter is active in volunteerism throughout Houston. Generally the organization participates in at least two charitable activities per month with adults and children who have communication needs. Their outreach is inspiring. NSSLHA members also expand their understanding of the fields of communication disorders by attending state and national conferences and participation in action awareness days such as Texas Speech Language Hearing Association’s Day at the Capital. Additionally, NSSLHA students grow as individuals by networking with each other and different student organizations, holding leadership positions, and, of course, attending social events.
