URISSLHA stands for University of Rhode Island Student Speech Language Hearing Association and is the name of our local chapter of the NSSLHA, the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association.
Becoming a member of URISSHLA will enable you to meet other students interested in the field of communicative disorders. It will also give you the opportunity to more easily talk with professors in the department in less formal settings and get their advice about courses to take and graduate school options. In the past the URISSHLA chapter has organized study groups, meetings that address areas of the field and allows students to learn about the process of applying to graduate school.
