DEVELOPMENTAL LANGUAGE DISORDER:
The Highly Prevalent Learning Disability
Hidden in Plain Sight

One to two children in every classroom have a developmental language disorder (DLD), a learning disability as prevalent as dyslexia but often hidden.

What are the characteristics of a developmental language disorder (DLD)? Is DLD different from Dyslexia? How can educators and parents effectively identify and support children with DLD? DLD is a lifelong brain difference that can impact how a child communicates, listens, learns to read, and executes academic tasks.

Join us to learn about the impacts of DLD on academic outcomes and more at the 2022 Fall Community Lecture, Thursday, October 27, 2022, 7:30 p.m. ET, with Tiffany Hogan, PhD, CCC-SLP.

This virtual event is FREE to attend. Registration is required.
