The British Voice Association provides Speech and Language Therapists with a further dimension to their traditional training and day to day experience, through educational activities and publications designed to share interdisciplinary knowledge about topical areas. The opportunity to network, share knowledge and learn about current developments in the care of the human voice, is a central purpose of the Association.
