Academic, scientific or professional interest: Social demands in Speech Therapy are not only reflected in the increase in jobs, but also through other indicators, such as the waiting lists for hospital services in Speech Therapy, which prove that they are insufficient, both in reference to their geographical distribution and the high rate of patients that cannot be treated; the demands in the field of education on the need for a greater presence of support staff, including speech therapists; and the demands of new services by other groups. In addition, the aging of the population implies an increasing demand for speech therapy professionals to work in the field of degenerative diseases, in nursing homes and in other institutions to rehabilitate the language of the elderly. Speech therapy professionals are also being incorporated into other professional fields as a result of social demand: from professional voice users (singers, journalists, teachers) to rehabilitation services as a result of accidents, beyond traditional areas such as developmental disorders or language learning in childhood. Finally, many groups with very different special needs are demanding speech therapy services: people with Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorders, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, etc.
