Research-School Collaboration to Support Adolescents With Developmental Language Disorder

The language used in the descriptions reflects the language of the sessions.

Adolescents with a developmental language disorder (AwDLD) face learning and integration challenges in various contexts, including school. Meanwhile, teachers feel insufficiently trained to support AwDLD. This research-school collaboration addresses this gap by designing and implementing a teacher-led and S-LP-supported school intervention to improve communication and social abilities of AwDLD. The interactive seminar will outline the 16 in-class activities as well as the steps of the project, from the logic model to the implementation of the intervention. These will be embedded in the general principles of integrated knowledge transfer that served as a framework for the project.
