The DLD Project
Creating a world where people with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD), a hidden but common disability, are recognised, understood and empowered to live their best life.
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.
