  • This course closed on 09/20/2023.

Welcome to IDLDRC 2022 – let the learning begin!

The day has finally arrived! Thank you for joining us for this important global event.

House Keeping

IDLDRC is a completely virtual event. Conference content for each day has been built as a ‘course’ of presentations (lessons) for delegates to work through daily.

Therefore, each new day of the conference you will need to head back to the conference dashboard and click into the relevant ‘course’ for that date.

We have an exciting day planned for you!

The day 1 line-up features an exciting opening session including the Acknowledgment of Country by Bronte Ramm a First Nations Peoples and practising speech pathologist and Professor Dorothy Bishop’s keynote presentation.

This is followed by 14 research presentations, 1 Keynote LIVE Q&A + a LIVE drop-in session with RADLD. See more details for each section below.

  • Advocacy & Awareness | 4 pre-recorded presentations (Approx. 1 hour to complete)

DLD from school years through to adulthood: the invisible condition


Although things have improved in the past few years, developmental language disorder (DLD) still has a very low public profile when compared to other neurodevelopmental condition such as autism and dyslexia. I’ll discuss some possible reasons for this. These include the different professional groups involved with different conditions, and different research funding bodies.

In addition, while DLD in preschoolers is generally obvious to others, language problems can go unnoticed in older children and adults. I will discuss how consistent terminology can help with recognition of DLD, while noting that the potential drawbacks of diagnosis need to be balanced against benefits.


Dorothy Bishop recently retired as Professor of Developmental Neuropsychology at the University of Oxford, where she headed an ERC-funded programme of research. She is an honorary fellow of St John’s College Oxford, and a Fellow of the Royal Society, the British Academy and the Academy of Medical Sciences. She has published substantial books and papers on the nature and causes of developmental language disorder, focusing on psycholinguistics, neurobiology and genetics. Beyond psychology, she is active in the field of open science and research reproducibility. She remains active on social media, with a popular blog, Bishopblog, and she tweets as @deevybee.
