Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) frequently co-occur. The impact of these disorders span across all aspects of life, including academic achievement, social interactions and employment. Individuals with DLD and ADHD are known to have differences in their executive and adaptive functioning, attention, memory, affect and emotional regulation. Understanding the impact of these needs and how to best support individuals to live their best life is crucial for families, educators and clinicians. This workshop combines current research with functional strategies to address the challenges experienced by people with DLD and ADHD.
