I have teamed up with Suzanne, a speech & language therapist from @the.babblingbookclub to create this infographic about DLD.
Developmental Language Disorder (DLD)
🗣DLD is diagnosed when a child or adult has significant difficulty talking and/or understanding language.
🗣 In an average class of 30, up to two children may have DLD (1 out of 15).
🗣 It has an impact on education in many ways – learning, reading, behaviour, social interaction.
🗣 You might notice:
- shorter sentences
- simpler vocabulary
- difficulties answering questions, following directions, having conversations
🗣 Best outcomes in intervention are when parents, speech and language therapists and teachers work together with the child with DLD.
