DLD isn’t a new text abbreviation or IG expression. It’s a real thing in the field of SLP and if you don’t know about it, you gotta’ tune in to get the scoop. This week, Tim DeLuca and Kate Radville- SLP’s and doctoral candidates basking in language and literacy nerdom - chat about all things DLD for the SLP. What is DLD? And why is it so important to get a handle on it in the vast and murky sea of semantics that we painfully stir in the SLP field? Kate and Tim explore how challenges with oral language have a domino effect on the attitudes and skills of students, impacting literacy, behavior, and more. You’ll gain assessment and intervention tips that hold fast to the golden thread of most SLP Nerdcast episodes - the importance of EBP and collaboration. There are some four letter words (ahem, “dysteachia”) and a big spotlight on resources in this engaging episode that confronts the strong connections between all aspects of the whole student and their whole future.
