Speech and Language Therapists work with people of all ages and backgrounds, from toddlers struggling to find their first words to elderly people recovering from a medical episode.
You may find that your clients have experienced racism when trying to access healthcare and support in the past, or you may be an SLT who has experienced racism while trying to carry out your work.
The resources here will help you understand the lived experiences of racism within speech and language therapy, and signpost you to the support you may need.
"We need to be able to educate others not only at work but in the community. All topics of racism are equally important, but if all of us had the basic tools this would start to make a difference."
