Recent international efforts to achieve consensus in the use of the term developmental language disorder (DLD) to describe children with persistent trouble with language development for no discernable reason have the potential to positively impact practice in speech-language pathology. A first step is for S-LP students to know and understand the historical context, evolution, current considerations and clinical profile associated with DLD. In this presentation, faculty from graduate programs in speech-language pathology across Canada will provide a summary of content related to DLD included in their curriculum. Our aim will be to consider consistency and supports for national implementation.
