When Your Child Can’t Communicate Well, Is It A Language Disorder?

When Your Child Can’t Communicate Well, Is It A Language Disorder?

When a child is significantly quieter than their peers, we say the child is shy or a wallflower. When a child stumbles over their words when telling you about something that happened in the playground, we smile indulgently, and simply help the child finish their story. In these two scenarios, we could be missing out on important signs that the child has a developmental language disorder. Consultant Developmental Paediatrician Dr Rajini Sarvananthan, and Speech and Language Therapist Iffah Rashida Mazlan, join us to explain how DLD affects children in their communication and literacy, schooling, as well as social interactions.
