Newsletter - October 2015

Hi there,

Welcome to the October 2015 newsletter. We wanted to remind you about speechBITE's free training program which teaches you how to rate the methodological quality of speech pathology research using the PEDro-P scale. This online program includes an interactive test at the end where you can practice rating two research articles. Find out more here.

This month we are updating you on some of the new papers added to the website over the last month.
