Newsletter - April 2023

Hi there,

Welcome to the April 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 literacy, adult language, voice, dysphagia, laryngectomy, stuttering, and supporting AAC use. Two of the papers are open access.

For those of you attending the Speech Pathology Australia Conference from 21st–24th May in Hobart, speechBITE will be at table five on the mezzanine level of the exhibition hub. Come and visit us—we'd love to say hello!
