Are you passionate about raising awareness of DLD and helping people to know the basics? We are too! That’s why we’ve created this FREE ‘Developmental Language Disorder – Know the basics’ flyer and made it available for download at the end of this post.
1 IN 14 PEOPLE HAVE DLD
Developmental Language Disorder is a hidden but common condition. A person with DLD is as intelligent as anyone else. They just have difficulties understanding and/or talking for no known reason.
DLD - Two students in every classroom
DLD affects approximately two students in the average classroom, which can impact on their literacy, learning, friendships and emotional well-being.
DLD can run in families
DLD tends to run in families. Twin studies indicate there is a strong genetic influence. DLD is not caused by families talking less to their children or speaking more than one language.
Can occur with other conditions
DLD commonly occurs with dyslexia, ADHD and behavioural difficulties. People with DLD may also have challenges with fine/gross motor skills, sensory regulation and speech sounds.
With the right supports people with DLD can thrive.
