Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) is diagnosed when children fail to acquire their own language for no obvious reason. Those with DLD have difficulty understanding what people say to them, and struggle to articulate their own ideas and feelings. Both adults and children can be diagnosed with DLD and without the right support they may struggle to achieve academically and socially.
Here at Bensham Manor we are supporting Developmental Language Disorder Awareness Day on the 19th of October! DLD is a ‘hidden’ disability that effects up to 1 in 14 people and has even been in the news recently!
