Excellent article about the need to develop a focused approach in order to uncover difficulties with language development in primary school. ‘Thought to affect two children in every class of 30 starting primary school … DLD often goes unidentified or misinterpreted as behavioural problems, largely due to the fact that DLD can manifest itself in poor behaviour.'
The Pupil Language Profile from Black Sheep Press is a screening measure which will enable teachers and therapists to obtain information on a child’s level of language function. It is a structured and easy to administer method of gathering information on a child’s language development, which can be used to inform the referral process, identify pupils who require more careful monitoring, and track progress. Currently on offer at £29.00 (regular price £38.00) https://www.blacksheeppress.co.uk/product/pupil-language-profile-screening-measure/
