Research shows that many children with trouble learning at school or communicating with others have an undiagnosed condition called DLD.
Imagine making a new friend, learning a new subject, or negotiating yourself out of a tough spot if your ability to use or understand language were a life-long challenge.
On average 2 students in every class of 30 have a neurodevelopmental condition called Developmental Language Disorder or DLD.
Friday 20th of October 2023 is DLD Awareness Day and so we’re calling on teachers to #ThinkLanguage #ThinkDLD.
This year’s #DLDday theme is DLD Around the World.
- DLD affects people around the world regardless of age, gender, language spoken or ethnicity.
- Speaking more than one language does not cause DLD. In fact, people with DLD can learn multiple languages.
Students with DLD can succeed at school when they are identified and access the right support. But first they need our help.
