Newsletter - March 2020

Hi there,

Welcome to the March speechBITE newsletter! This month we bring you an extended special edition of the newsletter featuring research on interventions delivered via telepractice, such as through the use of videoconferencing and/or online instruction, across various areas of speech pathology practice. This edition of the newsletter includes 12 open access papers.

To find more references on treatment research in the area of telepractice, go to the advanced search page and select 'Distance' under the 'Type of Service Delivered' drop down menu.

If you know of additional telepractice resources that you think should be added to the speechBITE website, you can contact us on speechbite.admin@sydney.edu.au. The FAQs section of the website details the criteria used to determine which studies are added.

Listed below are some of the most recent references on telepractice.
