Welcome to ECSF
The ‘European Clinical Specialization in Fluency Disorders' is a groundbreaking initiative in the field of fluency disorders.
The ‘ECSF' is a one-year program - compatible with the workload of an SLT - for speech-language therapists wanting to become European Fluency Specialists.
The program is run by a consortium consisting of 13 partners (universities and colleges) and 2 associate partners (centres of expertise) from 9 European countries.
The program will start its fifth course cycle in 2012.
Graduates of this course distinguish themselves by their outstanding ability, in-depth knowledge and expertise in the field of fluency disorders.
This program provides specialist knowledge and skills that can be recognized by your local professional body as important criteria leading to clinical specialization.
