Even if you’ve never heard of Developmental Language Disorder (DLD), you probably know someone with it. DLD is very common, and on average 2 children in every class of 30 have the condition.
DLD is when a person has difficulty talking and understanding spoken language. Spoken words and sentences are challenging for people with DLD.
DLD impacts on learning, reading, writing, social relationships and wellbeing so it is especially important that teachers know about DLD.
By knowing a bit more about DLD you can really have a huge impact on a child or young person’s life.
When you see a child or young person struggling, think about language, and think could it be DLD? #ThinkLanguage #ThinkDLD #RADLD
