Adolescents with developmental language disorder (AwDLD) face learning and integration challenges in various contexts, including school. Meanwhile, teachers feel insufficiently trained to support AwDLD. This project addresses this gap via a researcher-school co-design implementation of a teacher led and S-LP supported intervention to improve communication and social abilities of AwDLD. The interactive seminar will cover the objectives and the 16 in-class activities as well as the steps of the project from the logic model to the implementation of the intervention. These will be embedded in the general principles of integrated knowledge transfer that served as a framework for the project.
