Newsletter - April 2019

Hi there,

Welcome to the April speechBITE newsletter! April is Autism Awareness Month, and World Autism Awareness Day was held on 2nd April. In recognition of this global initiative we have a special edition of the newsletter for you, focused on interventions for autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

The papers included in this edition cover interventions targeting social/pragmatic skills, language, literacy, feeding, AAC, and prosody.

To find more references on communication interventions for autism, go to the advanced search page, and select 'Autistic spectrum disorders' from the 'Within this population' dropdown menu.
