Have you ever heard of Developmental Language Disorder (DLD)? On average, 2 to 3 children in UK classrooms have DLD which means they experience significant difficulties with understanding and using language. Children with DLD are at a higher risk of developing social anxiety, emotional and behavioural difficulties, and find it particularly challenging to access the curriculum in schools. Fortunately, this trajectory is not set in stone and we can all contribute to the wellbeing and success of these children!

In this event, we invite you to engage in an interactive workshop to demystify DLD , find out about the latest research on the topic and learn strategies to support children with difficulties in using and understanding language. There will be opportunities to engage in stimulating activities and hear from experts, such as researchers, Speech and Language Therapists, SEN Co, specialist teachers and parents of children with DLD . Do bring your little ones as well, as there will be fun activities for children to ‘graduate’ as junior scientists on language!
