TAASLP History

The Tennessee Speech Hearing Association was founded in 1953 and became the Tennessee Association of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists in 1974.

TAASLP Mission

The mission of the TAASLP is to meet the needs of persons with hearing, communication, and swallowing disorders and to enhance the professional development of audiologists and speech-language pathologists.

To accomplish these goals, we have an active lobbyist to monitor legislation affecting interests of professionals or patients in audiology and speech-language pathology. Additionally, TAASLP organizes an annual conference that features engaging presentations to facilitate professional development and offers excellent networking opportunities with professionals from across the state of Tennessee. Lastly, TAASLP is active in the community and is successful because of our wonderful members.
