What is SHAS?

SHAS stands for Speech-Language and Hearing Association Singapore and it is the professional association for speech and language therapists in Singapore. SHAS was formally registered with the Registrar of Societies in September 1994.


 SHAS aims to promote the profession of speech and language therapy in Singapore by:

  • promoting communication between members via its quarterly newsletter
  • organising professional development events in Singapore
  • improving recognition of the profession
