About Us

The Association of Speech-Language Therapists and Pathologists of Serbia (ULS) stands as the preeminent and pioneering professional organization of speech-language pathologists in Serbia.

To this end, pivotal initiatives have been undertaken, including the formulation of the Law on Speech Therapy profession and the establishment of the Serbian Speech Therapy Chamber.
