What can the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) or the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) do if I am having a problem in my academic program?
Neither NSSLHA (or ASHA) have the authority to intervene in an individual academic matter. If you are having a problem in your academic program, the first step is to review your university’s process for resolving academic disputes. This information is usually available in a student handbook or in the university course guide. It is always best to follow the process that the university has in place when dealing with these matters. Educate yourself on the process first. If information is not available contact the Office of Student Affairs (or its equivalent) on your campus for more information. Once you have an understanding of the process visit with your program director and work to resolve the problem. However, if you being asked to participate in unethical behavior OR if you can prove that your faculty is engaging in unethical behavior, then you should contact ASHA immediately. The procedure to file a complaint against a program is available on the ASHA Web site.
