Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) in the Workplace

I am a Research Speech and Language Therapist and member of Green Templeton College, reading for a DPhil in Primary Health Care at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences.

My study focuses on Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) in adulthood. It explores the life stories and work histories of adults with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) and Reading difficulties, hidden conditions that frequently co-occur. 

In my research, I draw on my lived-experience of Dyslexia and Developmental Co-ordination Disorder. My experience-informed study combines my professional interest, in the gap in DLD services for adults, with co-production to inform the design of future support.
