The voice of European Speech and Language Therapists

CPLOL is the umbrella organization for Speech and Language associations, uniting 32 countries with more than 80’000 professionals across Europe.

SLT develop their competencies

Speech and Languages Therapists are committed to offer the best possible treatment to their patients and strive to stay on top of the scientific development of their profession. CPLOL offers a platform to its associations to provide links to the available courses, congresses, conferences and seminars (CPD).

SLT clinical Practice

The speech and language therapists work with individuals who, because of their disabilities, present or are likely to present problems of integration and adaptation in their family, professional or social surroundings.

SLT Education

In the European Union, the Education 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.

SLT across Europe

The European Union allows Speech and Language Therapists to move across borders. For education of professional practice, this represents challenges for the professional. CPLOL stays on top of EU decisions and legal issues to maintain a high quality of knowledge and work of the professionals to the benefit of their patients.
