National Student Speech-Language-Hearing

The National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association (NSSLHA) is a pre-professional membership association for students interested in the study of communication sciences and disorders. Membership in national NSSLHA is available to undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral students enrolled full- or part-time in a communication sciences program or related major.

The Longwood University Chapter of NSSLHA seeks to promote the awareness of the professions related to communication sciences and disorders through on-campus learning and service activities.

Student Council for Exceptional Children (SCEC)

Students in the Special Education program are strongly encouraged to become members of the Council for Exceptional Children.

This student group meets monthly to discuss and share Special Education related information and events. They also organize some activities with the area schools to promote the educational outcomes of children with disabilities and arrange parties for children enrolled in classes for students with severe disabilities.

In the past some members of this group have volunteered in the "Read to a Child" program at Prince Edward Elementary School. This group also participates in the "Oktoberfest" celebrations on campus.

Involvement in this group provides an opportunity for the members to demonstrate their leadership skills.
