    HI,
    So is there a great outline on how to do a poster?  Is it just a matter of having pictures and talking about what you did or do you need to have research articles presented, data, etc?  I would love to get a little guidance.  I may have a therapy technique that I have been using that I would like to do a poster on one day.

    Hi Racquel,

    Posters are typically visual representations of a research study that has been conducted. Typically, the poster will contain similar sections to that of a research paper: background, methods, results, discussion, conclusion etc. I did a quick Google search and found this helpful tutorial from NYU Libraries: https://guides.nyu.edu/posters. If you would like to discuss this further, I would be happy to chat. Feel free to email me any time at rpolitis@asha.org.

    Thanks for your interest and for reaching out to ASHA!

    Raquel,

     

    This is a great question!  Personally, I have put together both research related posters as well as posters that were related to clinical service provision and/or other professional activities.  I am attaching PDF files of 2 posters that are more "clinical service provision OR professional activity".  All of these variations have a place in the world of presentations etc.  The key is the conference and the audience (research focus vs/ clinical service provision).  If you have an idea that you think others would like to see and/or hear about, I would STRONGLY encourage you to submit it to the ASHA convention as a poster (Call for Papers:  https://convention.asha.org/Call-For-Papers/; Topic areas: https://convention.asha.org/topic_areas.aspx). 

     

    Hope this is useful!
