Tell Me More About AAPPSPA

What an acronym.  After reading in forums I found out what this means American Academy of Private Practice in Speech Pathology and Audiology.  Their site looks professional and the group seems to have a lot to offer.  Does anyone out there belong?  Is this an organization worth joining?  Reasonable rates.



I received this response to my question when I posed it on ASHA forums….Thanks Denise

We have been in existence since 1964 and our mission is to support the private practitioner.  Each year we offer a business or clinical institute as well as a two day conference devoted to business, legal and clinical topics.  Our webinars are live as well as archived for on demand viewing and we offer ASHA ceu’s.  Our seminars coming up in the summer and fall include Sara Ward on executive function and
Lois Heyman on auditory processing/listening – assessment and therapy interventions.  The information for those last three webinars (Ward and Heyman) will be on our website within the next week or two after we have dates finalized.  It is not necessary to be a member to participate in our conferences or webinars.
Check out our website for the benefits of joining the organization.  This year our conference is in Vegas – the details should be on our website – and registration should be open shortly.

  1. If you are in private practice, please check out our organization! Also we have webinars for those who are considering making that change – check out Developing a Business Plan, Private Practice 101 and Thinking Outside the Box – discussing ways to increase your revenue stream. If you have any questions about the organization, webinars, conference etc please feel free to email me. We are getting ready to leave for our AAPPSPA At Sea – a cruise to the bahamas with seminars for asha credits. We offer a free marketing consult with our marketing expert – as part of your dues. This individual is fantastic and will assist you with great suggestions on how to increase your business, etc. Our business attorney is also available to review contracts, and answer legal questions.
