Growing with DLD by Dr. Karla McGregor | The 2022 Dorothy Bishop Lecture

October 3 @ 15:00 - 16:00

RADLD FUNDRAISER: In this talk, Dr. Karla McGregor will emphasize the developmental nature of Developmental Language Disorder (DLD). We will compare the language growth trajectories of younger and older individuals with DLD and consider how symptom presentation and functional impact change from young childhood to young adulthood. We will conclude by highlighting implications for diagnosis and treatment.

Funds raised from ticket sales will support the ongoing work of RADLD.
