DLD Resources For Families

'Get To Know Me' Editable Template

Helping the people supporting your child with DLD to understand them and their unique needs in various settings is difficult. This is why we have created this FREE resource to support you to connect with educators, therapists and the wider community to advocate for your child.

It can be printed as a double-sided A4. One side allows you to provide information about your child including their goals and needs and on the other side it has important information for professionals on DLD and where they can go for more information.

This file is an editable PDF ready for you to personalise and print or save and email. Unfortunately, we have not been able to create an easy way to add your child’s image to the template. You may need to stick one to the form or you can try uploading the template into PDFescape which will help you add an image.
