Newsletter - October 2019

Hi there,

Welcome to the October 2019 newsletter! International Developmental Language Disorder Awareness Day was on Friday, 18th October this year. To celebrate, this month we have a special edition of the newsletter for you focused on interventions for paediatric language disorders, including Developmental Language Disorder. The papers in this edition cover interventions for preschoolers, school aged children, and adolescents.

If you’re on social media, you can follow the RADLD campaign on Facebook or on Twitter – use the hashtags #DevLangDis and #DLDYouandMe. Next year’s International Developmental Language Disorder Awareness Day will be held on Friday, 16th October 2020.

Below is a list of some of the more recent SLP intervention research in the area of paediatric language disorders.
