DLD Awareness Day
Friday 14th October 2022.
Friday 14th October is DLD Awareness Day. DLD stands for Developmental Language Disorder and affects some of our students at Greenshaw High School. This year's theme is 'Growing with DLD' – this is to emphasise that DLD doesn't just disappear as you reach adulthood. It's a persistent, lifelong condition.
The poem attached is written by an individual with DLD from a previous year, but please take a moment to read it as it covers a lot of behaviours that are presented by some of our students in school. When you see some of these behaviours, please take a moment and 'Think DLD'.
