Saturday March 21st saw the first ever NAPLIC online conference. This was thrust upon us by circumstances, and although a very different experience it was amazingly successful.
‘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.
Agreed terminology is the first step to increasing awareness, providing coherent information to parents, children and young people, accessing funding for research and developing the best possible services.
