Language Disorder
(DLD)

1 in 14 Australians have a hidden but common condition (disability) called Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) and they feel invisible. That’s the equivalent of two children in the average classroom.

This condition was previously identified by many labels, including, Specific Language Impairment, Language Disorder, Language Impairment and Language Learning Impairment.

" The DLD Project delivered the most informative and constructive session ever….! Shaun's candid, honest and targeted style of delivery was just what we needed at this point in our journey. He provided us with cutting edge information and allowed us to be privy to the decision-making process he adopts for diagnoses.
