RADLD DLD Awareness Day 2020

This Developmental Language Disorder Awareness Day, RADLD, is calling on everyone to #DLDSeeMe.  With 1 in 14 children having DLD, it is time we talk more about this hidden but common lifelong condition.

You’ve probably heard about autism and dyslexia. Now it’s time to find out about DLD.

DLD causes difficulties with speaking and understanding for no known reason. There are serious and long-term impacts, as it puts children at greater risk of failing at school and struggling with mental health and future employment.  The biggest challenge with DLD is you can’t tell by looking at a person that they have DLD and therefore, they often get overlooked for support. 

People with DLD can be as different as you and I. However, it is important to know that with the right supports, they can thrive!

Developmental Language Disorder Awareness Day, now in its fourth year, is celebrated annually around the world with more than 30 countries involved in 2019. This year’s campaign is ‘DLD – See Me’ and families, teachers, therapists and the community are coming together to ensure people with DLD no longer feel invisible.

We invite all RADLD supporters to join our official RADLD Fundraising team and help raise funds so we can invest in furthering our awareness raising activities. 100% of all donations will go directly to raising greater awareness of DLD globally.

You can find out more about our work at the RADLD website.
