Celebrating 75 years of speech and language therapy

This year marks the 75th anniversary of speech and language therapy in the UK and to celebrate, staff from across local mental health services are sharing their stories of what it's like to work as a speech and language therapist in 2020.

The yearlong national campaign is being led by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) and gives an opportunity to explore the history of the profession, the developments that have been made and how this has influenced the speech and language therapy that we know today.
