An overview of Developmental Language Disorder

For a change, WIKIPEDIA gets it right when it comes to Developmental Language Disorder

A good overview of Developmental Language Disorder originally written by professionals who know what they are talking about.

Developmental language disorder (DLD) is identified when a child has problems with language development that continue into school age and beyond. The language problems have a significant impact on everyday social interactions or educational progress, and occur in the absence of autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability or a known biomedical condition. The most obvious problems are difficulties in using words and sentences to express meanings, but for many children, understanding of language (receptive language) is also a challenge, although this may not be evident unless the child is given a formal assessment.
