How to Support Children with DLD – Online Training Event



2021 – date to be confirmed


Our in-house training course, How to Support Children with Development Language Disorder (DLD), aims to explore the hidden disability of DLD, which affects approximately two children in every classroom. There is no known single cause of DLD, but it has a significant, life-long effect on children causing them to struggle to understand and use spoken language. The comprehensive course provides an in-depth overview of what DLD is, how to identify children with DLD characteristics, recognise the impact on DLD on education and learn a variety of proven universal strategies for supporting pupils with DLD within the classroom and readily adapt your communication and teaching strategies to these pupils.
