Newsletter - January 2021

Hi there,

Welcome to the first newsletter of 2021! We hope you had a restful break over the holidays.

Here at speechBITE we’re looking forwards to keeping you updated during 2021 on the latest SLP references, which are added monthly to the speechBITE website.

We have a great 2021 planned, including special edition newsletters. These are produced every second month on a range of topics. To kick things off, in this edition of the newsletter we are updating you on the latest intervention research that has recently been added to speechBITE.
