Newsletter - April 2018

Hi there,

Welcome to the April 2018 newsletter! This month we are updating you on all the references recently added to speechBITE.

For those of you attending the Speech Pathology Australia Conference from May 27-30 in Adelaide, speechBITE will have a stand in the exhibition hall and will be collecting brief testimonials from speechBITE users on how the website has been useful to their clinical practice. Come and visit us at our stand, we'd really appreciate some feedback from you!
