Afasic - parents support

Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) is the new term to replace specific language impairment (SLI).  Up to two children in every classroom have this condition.

Afasic is pleased to have hosted the first DLD conference to be held in Wales.  Key speakers for the day  were Professor Dorothy Bishop, Professor Courtney Norbury, Dr Susan Ebbels, and Sheila Davies.

  1. Please could i be put on the reserve delegate list as i have been told about this as my little boy has been given this diagnosis

    • Hi Rach,
      We have now added you to the reserve list and will be in touch if a place becomes available.

  2. It would be very beneficial to hold another conference for parents who live in the north of England who have children with this diagnosis and who feel isolated as many professionals do not or never heard about DLD.
    Can parents get hold of the information shared at this conference please ?

    • Hi Susan,
      We’ll add your name to the reserve list and contact you if a place becomes available.
