Fund vital DLD Research to support advocacy to the NDIS

We have an incredible line up of researchers from Australia's top universities ready to work with people with DLD, their families and clinicians to create a unified understanding of the definition and measurement of functional impact in DLD, which has implications for early identification and services.

Additionally, current government funding models (e.g., National Disability Insurance Scheme: NDIS) use metrics of functional impact to determine eligibility for financial support.

This DLD research project will directly inform diagnosis and service provision for DLD. The outcomes of this body of work will have significant implications for funding prioritisation and service access for people with DLD in Australia. We believe it will give us powerful evidence to prove that DLD is a lifelong disability that meets NDIS functional impact criteria.

And the best part is, we only need to raise $11,000 AUD to fund this vital research!!

Shout out to the research team including Dr Samuel D Calder, Dr Lizz Hill, Dr Emily Jackson, Emily Hunt, Dr Emily D’Arcy, A/Prof Suze Leitão, A/Prof Alison Holm, A/Prof Jade Cartwright.

Any donation you can make will bring us closer to our goal of getting people with DLD access to the supports they deserve!

Thank you for your support!
