Abstract: Confusion over terminology for language difficulties ran for almost 200 years and this has hindered awareness and communication. Professor Dorothy Bishop and Professor Maggie Snowling led a consensus process to tackle this issue. In this film Dorothy Bishop explains the consensus process, the agreement to use the term Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) and the agreed criteria for this disorder. More information can be found on the RADLD slides on slide share including links to the full articles reporting on the consensus.
