Newsletter - September 2021

Hi there,

Welcome to the September 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 adult speech and language; paediatric language and literacy; AAC; dysphagia; and voice. Six of the papers are open access.

A great way to keep up to date with what we’re working on at speechBITE is by following us on social media. You can find speechBITE on Twitter and Facebook.
