Speech and Language MASTERCLASS


DLD - The Most Common Special Educational Need You Never Heard Of

Overview

A relatively new term, DLD (Developmental Language Disorder) is a diagnosis given when a child or adult has persistent difficulties talking and/or understanding language with no known cause. Although the term is new, this type of language learning difficulty is not.

Affecting approximately 2 children in every classroom, DLD impacts on literacy, learning, friendships and emotional well-being. The condition may persist into adulthood and, without support can be associated with behavioural and/or mental health problems, unemployment, and economic disadvantage.

Sometimes described as a "hidden" difficulty, children may reach adolescence or adulthood without a diagnosis.


Learning Outcomes

Understand the diagnosis DLD, where it fits within the wider spectrum of Speech, Language & Communication Needs (SLCN) and how it can manifest across age groups.

Recognise signs of DLD and know what steps to take to support pupils who may have the condition.

Recognise the links between language and learning and how small changes in the classroom can make all the difference to their understanding, progress and motivation.

Enable children with DLD to develop their skills in independent learning and become confident taking part in class-based activities.

Identify and feel confident in accessing and using available resources / interventions.
