The 2023 NAPLIC conference took place on Saturday 22nd April. The theme was ‘Developmental Language Disorder from every angle’ and included topics related to DLD in relation to mental health, genetics, working memory and classroom support.
‘Developmental Language Disorder’ (DLD) is identified when children, young people or adults have difficulties with understanding the language they hear or speaking in sentences to express meaning.
DLD can be used to describe the condition if there is no other cause for the language difficulties, such as autism.
NAPLIC has launched a series of online learning modules designed for professionals who have some understanding of Developmental Language Disorder (DLD), but who wish to develop greater insight and skill with diagnosing the condition.
These free modules are between 20 and 60 minutes long and feature additional handouts and resources.
