It is thought that there are more than 2 children in a class of 30 who have Developmental Language Disorder.

It's more common than Autism, but not enough people know about it.

DLD was, until recently, also known as ‘Specific Language Impairment’, ‘language disorder’ and ‘developmental language impairment’. But little is known about the presentation, and many children go undiagnosed and therefore lack the help they need.

Libby Hill, award winning Speech & Language therapist will be improving our knowledge of DLD in her amazing 5-star webinar.

We will explore:

1. What is DLD?

2. What are the key traits or symptoms?

3. How DLD can be mistaken for other presentations and conditions such as Autism.

4. What difficulties does a child with DLD have?

5. What interventions can be done at home and at school to help children with DLD?

6. When will your child need a speech therapist? And what can they offer?

As always there will be time for questions throughout the presentation.

Slides, references and CPD certificates will be available to attendees along with a recording to watch again for up to 30 days afterwards.
