The National CEN in Disorders of Fluency (previously known as SIG) sig july 2014 committee
was established by a group of Speech & Language Therapists who were keen to extend their knowledge of fluency disorders. The groups’ aims are:

  • to provide mutual support,  information and contact for colleagues working in the field of dysfluency. 
  • to organise study days and meetings to promote continuing professional development.
  • to act as a forum to discuss policy developments and issues relating to dysfluency.

Our constitution has been recently updated and can be downloaded here. We produce a newsletter SIGNAL twice a year. We have approximately 120 members. Study days are held three times a year at various venues in the UK. These meetings are free for members. Meeting minutes are available for members with website access here.  See Events for more details. Membership is open to registered Speech & Language Therapists, SLT students, retired SLTs and other interested parties approved by the committee. See How to Join.
