Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) is a hidden disability that affects approximately two children in every classroom, affecting literacy, friendships and emotional well-being (RADLD.org). DLD is when a child has difficulty expressing themselves or understanding language. By the end of this session, attendees will better understand the nature of DLD and the signs of children who may possibly have DLD. Two district speech-language pathologists will provide an overview of tier 1 and 2 evidence-based strategies to support children's oral language comprehension and expression. Let's work together to help all children be successful with the curricular core competency of communication.          Target Audience: All
