Standing Liaison Committee of E.U. Speech and Language Therapists and Logopedists


In the European Union, the Educaton of Speech and Language Therapists is situated on a Bachelor or/and a Masters level and in different faculties.

The initial training of SLTs reflects the scientific, professional and interdisciplinary aspects of the profession: a science about speech, language and communication disorders in all the aspects of comprehension and expression in oral and written modalities. SLTs are active in prevention, evaluation, treatment and scientific study of these disorders often in collaboration with professionals of other fields.

The Education Commission is one of the two permanent commissions of the CPLOL.
