2020 – ‘DLD SEE ME’

In 2020, in the midst of a challenging year due to COVID-19 we called on the world to #DLDSeeMe. Children, young people and adults from across the globe came together to create a short video encouraging everyone to learn more about Developmental Language Disorder (DLD).

2019 – ‘DLD – You and me’

In 2019 we focused on telling your stories.  People with DLD, families and professionals submitted stories and videos to our website, which were then shared on social media.  We also focused on translating our DLD Fact Sheet in different languages with the support of volunteer translators from around the world.  This year also saw the first “Light Up Events” with landmarks lighting up purple and yellow.
