Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) is the term used to diagnose individuals when they fail to acquire their own language for no obvious reason. 2 children in every classroom of 30 will experience DLD which is severe enough to hinder academic progress. When provided with high quality support and understanding, an individual with DLD can achieve social, academic, and professional success.

Our online workshop includes key information: the facts, signs, and impacts, including some general strategies. It also includes a workbook to complete to consolidate learning. The aim of this workshop is to raise awareness of DLD. This will be beneficial for teaching staff who work closely with individuals who have DLD, to understand more about their individual needs.

This pack has been developed by Rachel, one of our Speech and Language Therapists.

We hope that you enjoy the workshop.
