NAPLIC launches ‘DLD friendly’ scheme

To support services implement the changes to DLD terminology and criteria NAPLIC has developed the ‘DLD friendly’ scheme.

This is a simple self audit which outlines the general areas of service change. Once submitted and approved the ‘DLD friendly’ logo can then be added to letterheads, email signatures etc.

The scheme is open to Speech and Language Therapy and specialist education services which support children and young people with DLD, from all parts of the UK. At this point in time the scheme is not suitable for schools or individual practitioners. The services must be either a group member or have two staff members who are NAPLIC members at the time of submission.

More information and how to apply is available via the Member Area for all NAPLIC members.

New information leaflets released for NAPLIC members

The first in a series of information leaflets have just been published by NAPLIC and are available for all NAPLIC members via the Members Area of the website.

These leaflets focus on DLD and are a useful resource for NAPLIC members and are entitled ‘What is DLD’, ‘DLD take a second look’ and ‘DLD Strategy Tree’. They are yours to print off and hand out to families or other professionals.

Developmental Language Disorder Awareness Day is on October 19th

The second Raising Awareness of Developmental Language Disorder (RADLD) Day will be held on Friday October 19th. NAPLIC is part of the international RADLD consortium, and it looks set to be bigger than last year’s amazing event.

The 2018 theme is DLDABC. For inspiration go to radld.org. There are stickers to print off as well as ideas for you to get involved. Whatever you do, take photos and post them on social media tagged #DLDABC and #devlangdis. We urge everyone to join in and spreading the word about DLD.

NAPLIC Conference 2018

The 2018 conference will be held in either late April or mid-May. The working themes currently are the Bercow 10 Years Review and next steps with Developmental Language Disorders, now that we have a label for the condition.
