Newsletter - July 2020

Hi there,

Welcome to the July speechBITE newsletter! This month we have a special edition of the newsletter for you, with the spotlight on interventions for voice disorders. The papers included in this edition include interventions that utilise vocal/respiratory exercises, pharmaceuticals, and technology. One of the randomised controlled trials compares telepractice and face-to-face voice therapy.

To view all the research on interventions for voice disorders on speechBITE, go to the advanced search page and select 'Voice' under the 'Speech Pathology Practice Area' drop down menu.
