DLD + Co-occurring Conditions
9 June 2021
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
‘Developmental Language Disorder’ 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.
This webinar will be hosted online using Zoom. Details will be emailed to participants in the days prior to the workshop. Please book as soon as you’ve decided to avoid missing out!
Following completion of the webinar, you will:
- Be familiar with a range of frequently co-occurring conditions with DLD.
- Understand how these difficulties may present.
- Know who to speak to for further support.
This webinar has been developed for educators, occupational therapists, psychologists and speech pathologists. However, parents of children with DLD may also consider attending.
Please email connect@TheDLDProject.com with any questions regarding the registration process.
