Interventions to Support Children with Developmental Language Disorder

The language used in the description reflects the language of the session.

Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) is a persistent language problem with a significant impact on everyday social interactions or educational progress. In this workshop, we’ll briefly review the criteria and characteristics of DLD, but we’ll spend the majority of the session talking about intervention. We’ll discuss classroom strategies, small group supports, and individual therapies, primarily in the context of school-aged children although the information will be relevant to other ages as well. We’ll also think about intervention design, monitoring outcomes and options for intensifying intervention when needed. This will be an interactive session with ample time for questions and discussion.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the criteria and characteristics of Developmental Language Disorder
  • Know evidence-based intervention options for children with DLD
  • Have strategies for monitoring and modifying intervention as needed
