Newsletter - June 2021

Hi there,

Welcome to the June speechBITE newsletter! In this edition, we are updating you on the latest intervention research that has recently been added to speechBITE. The papers included in this edition cover interventions for adults with aphasia, dysarthria, intellectual disability, and TBI. There are also papers covering interventions for paediatric language and literacy, AAC, paediatric feeding, dysphagia, and voice. Six of the papers are open access.

A great way to keep up to date with what we’re working on at speechBITE is by following us on social media. You can find speechBITE on Twitter and Facebook.
