Does speaking more than one language cause DLD? This is a question we often hear from families who speak two or more languages at home.
The short answer is NO. DLD affects people who speak only one language AND people who speak two or more languages.
In fact, being multilingual may actually be beneficial!
In this episode of The Talking DLD Podcast, Emily Hunt, speech pathologist and PhD candidate at Edith Cowan University will talk to us about her work investigating the diagnosis of children with DLD who speak 2 or more languages.
