Signs of Developmental Language Disorder (DLD)
Children with Developmental Language Disorder (formerly Specific Language Impairment) are as able and healthy as other children. With one exception, they have great difficulty thinking about, understanding and using language. They are often as intelligent as other children their age, but still have difficulties with language. There may be no outward signs of disability and no obvious physical indicators of a problem. For this reason, Developmental Language Disorder is also known as a ‘hidden disability’ affecting 1 in 14 children.Download (884.06 KB)
