Course overview

This module is for speech and language therapists working with children who have speech, language and communication problems. It is also for others with a special interest and some background in developmental language problems.

Through a mixture of direct teaching, discussion and student-led presentations, the module will give you access to current issues in Developmental Language Disorder and provide opportunities to reflect on the implications for support and intervention in a range of settings.

It will extend your knowledge of current research methods and findings, develop your insights into relations between current research and clinical/educational practice, and enhance your ability to apply your knowledge and understanding to work with children with DLD.
