Professional and qualified Speech and Language Therapists in North Yorkshire
A Speech and Language Therapist has to be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) in order to legally practise as a therapist in the NHS. For this to happen they will have completed a degree specifically in that field, although this used to be a diploma. Most therapists are members of The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.
The role of the HCPC is to ensure that therapists maintain and update their knowledge and skills and are committed to good practice.
When looking for an independant speech and language therapist, you should ensure that they are a member of ASLTIP and HCPC registered. This will ensure that they have completed the right training and are committed to updating their skills and knowledge within the field. You can check on the HCPC's and ASLTIP's website to see if a therapist is registered.
