When language is no fun.

Language is amazing, but not for everyone. People with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) often don’t experience language as much fun. Children with Developmental Language Disorder have difficulty in talking, learning to speak and understanding language. Their brains are less effective at processing language. This results in lagging development and frustration. 

Statistically, one in every 20 children has a Developmental Language Disorder. The sooner the condition is diagnosed, the more successful the treatment. For this reason, care and educational organisations, Pento, Kentalis and the Hanzehogeschool Groningen (University of Higher Education), have issued a call for extra attention to these, often invisible Developmental Language Disorders, in 2018.

The Developmental Language Disorder symposium, ‘DLD: When language is no fun’, for professionals in the care and educational professions, will be held in the afternoon of Friday, 21 September.  Special attention, in the form of various activities for parents and children, will also be given to Developmental Language Disorders in the week following the symposium.
