Welcome to the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (San Jose State University Chapter)!

The National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) is a national organization for undergraduate and/or graduate students who are interested in the study of speech language pathology and/or audiology. It is the only organization of its kind recognized by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA). Founded in 1972, NSSLHA now has over 18,000 members and local chapters at more than 285 colleges and universities.

The Silicon Valley's local chapter was founded at San Jose State University in 1977. SJSU NSSLHA members are active in fundraising and community service, and attend various educational programs such as guest lectures and regional, state and national conferences.

Many SJSU NSSLHA members also belong to other local organizations such as Santa Clara County Speech and Hearing Association (SCCSHA), California Speech-Language Hearing Association (CSHA), and national NSSLHA.
