New speechBITE website launch

14 November 2013

The new look speechBITE website will be launched internationally by Professor Leanne Togher at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Convention 2013 in Chicago on Friday 15th November.

speechBITE is a searchable online database that allows speech pathologists to find the best published research evidence available for the treatment of communication and swallowing disorders. speechBITE is unique in that it also pre-appraises the scientific quality of many group comparison studies on the website. The new website offers enhanced search functionality and easier navigation making it one of a kind worldwide.

Launched originally in 2008 by a team led by Professor Togher in the Discipline of Speech Pathology, the website's international audience has grown significantly with more than one million hits in 2012 from over 120 countries worldwide.
