History

The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists is the UK Speech and Language Therapists' professional body. It sets and maintains standards for the education, clinical practice, and ethical conduct of UK Speech and Language Therapists.

The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists was founded in 1945, at which time it was called the College of Speech Therapists. The College was created when two pre-existing organisations, the Association of Speech Therapists and the British Society of Speech Therapists, merged. It was incorporated 02 Apr 1953.

The College introduced its own diplomas for Speech Therapists in 1947, and ultimately succeeded in introducing university degree courses in the area - by 1985, all new professionals were graduates.

The members of the College of Speech Therapists voted in 1991 to change their name to the College of Speech and Language Therapists, and there was another name change in 1995 (the College's Golden Jubilee year) making it the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.
