Training for Educators

Identifying the two children with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) in the average classroom can be challenging especially when we’re still learning more about DLD every day. We truly believe one of the most important places to create greater awareness of DLD is in schools. With this in mind, we are investing in developing training options for educators which we will be launching shortly. In the meantime, we have teamed up with the incredible Dr Julia Starling to offer the LINK-S Program. Find out more below.

The Linking Language with Secondary School Learning (LINK-S) Program is an evidence-based professionally collaborative approach to supporting secondary school students with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) and other language-based learning difficulties.

This Response to Intervention Tier 1 model of service delivery aims to create ‘language-friendly’ secondary school classrooms, by coaching teachers and supporting clinicians in ways to modify the oral and written instructional language used in their regular classroom teaching practices. The program has been successfully implemented in many schools across Australia, with classroom and learning support teachers reporting positive results in students’ classroom engagement and academic progress.
