‘Developmental Language Disorder’ (DLD) is known to impact on language development, but rarely occurs in isolation. In fact, people with DLD are likely to also have difficulties with attention, reading, speech and emotional regulation. This webinar has been designed to help educators and health professionals consider different areas of need for people with DLD.
