Newsletter - April 2021

Hi there,

Welcome to the April speechBITE newsletter.

We’re making some changes to the newsletter! In the past, speechBITE newsletters have been one of two formats — either an issue featuring the newest treatment papers we've added to the database, or a special edition covering a particular topic of interest. In future, all newsletters will be general, covering the latest intervention research, rather than featuring special interest topics. We hope this change will mean you find something of interest in every edition of the newsletter.

The papers included in this newsletter cover interventions for paediatric language and literacy, adult language, speech, fluency, paediatric feeding, dysphagia, AAC, and voice.
