Greeting from the President of the IALP
Founded in 1924 in Vienna, Austria, by Dr Emil Froeschels, the IALP is the oldest international organization working from a global perspective on scientific, educational and professional issues affecting persons with communication, language, voice, speech, hearing and swallowing disorders.
IALP’s mission is to provide a network that enables those concerned with communication sciences and disorders to work together and enrich their understanding by providing an opportunity to situate their work within broad multicultural perspectives. This expanded vision serves to enrich their work on behalf of individuals with communication disorders and reduce geographical and political barriers to the highest levels of scientific inquiry and service.
Through its meetings and publications IALP provides a venue for sharing recent research findings, educational and professional advances, and public information. Our members, scientists, physicians, speech-language pathologists, and practitioners work in over 57 countries and come from every continent around the world.
IALP works closely with the 58 Affiliated Societies that comprise its world-wide partners. The organization also has consultative status with the World Health Organization of the United Nations and works in association with the United Nations Department of Public Information.
Looking at problems from various points of view informs us all and creates a better understanding of communication sciences and disorders from the broadest geo-political-socio-cultural context. As the President of IALP it is my pleasure to welcome you to this web site. If you have questions or would like to share comments, please contact me at or the IALP Office, at
