Newsletter - October 2017

Hi there,

Welcome to the October newsletter! This month we have a special edition newsletter focusing on research on language and literacy interventions for adolescents

Our special edition newsletters are sent out bimonthly and feature all the latest published research in a clinical area. This year we have sent out editions on traumatic brain injuryinterventions for children with hearing loss, aphasia rehabilitation and acquired apraxia of speech.

You can access all the speechBITE special edition newsletters from past years here.
