'DLD Together' will run on a weekday evening, for six weeks via 'Microsoft Teams' in June/July.  Initially for parents of children in school years 3-6, but there are plans to run more courses in the future for other age groups. 

Please contact Jane Glover (Speech and Language Therapst) for more information, or to sign up. 

More information: 

‘DLD Together’ is an initiative started by two UK charities which focus on Developmental Language Disorder(DLD): Afasic (for families) and NAPLIC (for professionals). They are combining forces because they are aware that families want to know more about DLD and are finding it hard to access information. It is believed that well informed and well supported families are essential if children and young people with DLD are to reach their full potential. 

Aims for participants: 

  1. To understand about DLD and how it applies to your child 

  1. To develop an understanding of your child’s individual language profile  

  1. To develop strategies to support your child at home 

  1. To learn how they can support your child’s learning 

  1. To meet other families of children with DLD
