About us

Communication Therapy International is for anyone interested in or working in the field of Speech and Language Therapy/Pathology/communication disability in the UK or overseas. This includes Speech and Language Therapists/Pathologists, volunteers, teachers, doctors, parents and carers, community workers as well as people with a communication disability themselves. Our main focus is to support access to information and resources for those working in low and middle income countries where this is limited.

The hope is to increase the scope and effectiveness of support in low and middle income countries for individuals with speech, language and communication difficulties, as well as those with with eating and drinking difficulties.

CTI was established in 1990 and is run by a small committee of Speech and Language Therapists who are mostly based in the UK but interested in international work. In 2017 it became registered as a CEN (Clinical Excellence Network) of SLTs in the UK.
