Course Details

This CPD course equips educators with the knowledge to understand and support students with developmental language disorders. 

DLD is surprisingly common, thought to affect up to 1 in 14 children in their early years, with a range of symptoms that often persist well into adulthood. Those with the disorder have trouble with the comprehension and expression of language, usually resulting in communication difficulties. Learning how to navigate the challenges of this disorder is crucial for educators who wish to make learning accessible to as many as possible!

Recommended for a wide range of education professionals including teachers from primary to tertiary, teaching assistants, SENCOs, youth workers, and residential childcare workers, the course covers a broad spectrum. Attendees will learn about the causes and risk factors of developmental language disorder, the common characteristics to look out for in classrooms, how it can be assessed and diagnosed, and how they can develop awareness of it amongst their teams and peers.

Learning about this widespread and challenging condition is a fantastic way to continue your professional development—a must for anyone in the education field. The comprehensive and practical course provides tools for educators to understand, recognise, and navigate DLD in their own setting.
