Purdey – Student with DLD

Posted by


“Developmental Language Disorder, it’s when you have difficulties talking and understanding words. It affects children and adults. It’s been called lots of things like Speech Language Impairment (SLI) but now its been agreed to be called DLD. It’s just like speaking a different language, you’re oblivious to what they are saying. You just want them to speak english. Not those big words. It just makes it way more harder. You really, really want to say something and it just stops. Your brain has just gone is that the word, no its not, is it this one, no its not. It’s picking out those different things. I just want it to teleport to the other person’s head so they know what it means and they get what I’m trying to say to them as quickly as I can.”
