European Day of SLT

What is the European Day of Speech and Language Therapy?


In 2004, CPLOL created European Day in order to increase awareness of the SLT profession throughout Europe. It was considered essential to develop public awareness about communication disorders, their effect on human health, the rights of patients with communication disorders and ways to help them. The message of European day is that the prevention of communication disorders may gain by sharing knowledge and experience throughout Europe. With that in mind, one theme is proposed each year, and where possible, a common slogan and shared materials are used.

The themes of the European Day – the 6th of March – in the coming years will be the following:

 Year  The themes over the years 
2019  Autisme Spectrum Disorder
2018  Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC)  Materials for European Day Activities across Europe in 2018
