There’s certainly nothing wrong with dreaming about a better future for the students, educators and admissions professionals in your speech, language and hearing programs.
Just consider the theme of this year’s upcoming American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Convention in Orland, FL: “Imagine More.”
Of course, matriculating more students — and introducing more efficiency and more diversity — into your speech and hearing programs requires more than just imagination. It also requires action, such as adopting strategies and technology that will ensure your program continues to attract the best students every cycle and remain a leader in the field for years to come.
Bringing together the best
That’s why Liaison will be joining approximately 15,000 speech-language pathologists, audiologists and speech, language and hearing scientists at the ASHA Convention, “the most comprehensive education event in the world for speech, language, and hearing professionals.”
Liaison has been at the forefront of admissions and marketing services in the field since 2012, when it launched CSDCAS™, the Centralized Application Service (CAS™) for communications sciences and disorders programs.
In the 2017/2018 cycle alone, CSDCAS helped 146 participating universities process nearly 38,000 overall applications — a year-over-year increase of 7.4%. It’s also worth noting that the average number of applications submitted by applicants has continued to rise annually since the debut of SCDCAS, reaching 3.6 applications per students in 2017/2018.
Look for Liaison
According to ASHA, the convention is a “once-a-year opportunity to learn about the latest research, expand clinical skills and techniques, find new products and resources and network with colleagues while earning continuing education credit.”
On top of that, the exhibit hall features nothing less than “the largest annual showcase in the country of companies dedicated to the professions of audiology, speech-language pathology, and speech and hearing science.”
That’s where you can find Liaison — and find us you should! After all, we provide the unparalleled strategies, technology and services your program requires in order to thrive, regardless of any challenges it may face now or in the future. We’d love to hear your thoughts about the most important issues facing your program and the profession as a whole. Together, we can help accomplish your institution’s most crucial short- and long-term goals.
The ASHA Convention takes place in Orlando, FL from November 21–23. You can learn more about it here.
