Newsletter - February 2022

Hi there,

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

Did you know that you can perform an Advanced search on the speechBITE website? You can search by speech pathology practice area, type of intervention, age group, service delivery model, and/or research design. We have a glossary of search terms used on speechBITE, to help you plan your searches. We also have a handy search strategies guide, full of tips for searching speechBITE.
