ASLTIP is pleased to provide commissioners of speech and language therapy services and those seeking to have their services commissioned with information.
All ASLTIP members are registered members of both the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and are committed to good business standards.
ASLTIP holds a register of its members and provides a searchable database of speech therapists who are available to members of the public.
Speech and Language Therapists assess communication and swallowing problems and then give treatment to enable people to communicate to the best of their ability, and/or advice on safe swallowing. Speech therapists work with the client's family where necessary and may also give advice to schools and medical personnel.
