Newsletter - June 2019

Hi there,

Welcome to the June speechBITE newsletter! This month we have a special edition of the newsletter for you, focused on literacy interventions.

The papers included in this edition cover interventions for alexia and agraphia in adult populations, and reading and writing treatments for children. In addition to case study and RCT papers, there are also three systematic reviews: one on reading comprehension in aphasia, one on single-word reading in children who use AAC, and one on summarizing and main idea interventions in school aged children.

There are over 1,000 articles on literacy and pre-literacy interventions on the speechBITE database. You can find them by selecting “Literacy and pre-literacy intervention” from the drop-down menu in the “Type of intervention” field using the advanced search. To refine the search results, try selecting an age group or population.
