Reply To: Groups/Forums for parents of children with DLD

Rachel Barton

Hi Ann-Marie,
There is a facebook group “Developmental Language Disorder (formerly SLI) support”. It has 3.4K members worldwide, many being in the UK. Members are adults who have DLD, parents of children who have DLD and some professionals including SLTs. I joined and watched for a while before recommending it to a parent. Sometimes professionals post research that families can get involved with but mostly it’s parents sharing challenges they face and asking questions. Sometimes I get a bit star struck because someone like Susan Ebbels or Stephen Parsons will comment!! Here is a link to the group – see what you think:
Best wishes,
