A longitudinal analysis of early language difficulty and peer problems on later emotional difficulties in adolescence

This study used data from the Millennium Cohort Study to investigate the relationship between language and emotional well being. Although those with DLD are at risk one finding is more hopeful and suggests ‘better relationships with peers may offer some protection against poor mental health outcomes in adolescents at risk of developmental language disorder.’
