Newsletter - January 2019

Hi there,

Welcome to the first newsletter of 2019! We hope you had a wonderful break over the holidays.

Here at speechBITE we’re looking forwards to keeping you updated during 2019 on the latest SLP references, which are added monthly to speechBITE.

We have a great 2019 planned, including special edition newsletters, produced every second month, on a range of topics. To kick off 2019, we are updating you on the latest intervention research that has been added to speechBITE.
