Newsletter - June 2020

Hi there,

Welcome to the June speechBITE newsletter! In this edition, we are updating you on the latest intervention research that has recently been added to speechBITE. The papers included in this edition cover interventions for acquired and developmental disorders of language, paediatric literacy, adult and paediatric speech, dysphagia, and fluency. There are also clinical practice guidelines for the management of dysphonia and swallowing in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can catch up on all the previous editions of the speechBITE newsletter here - the archive goes back to 2014!
