A big thank you to Colette Leblanc, the mother of a child with a Developmental Language Disorder (DLD), who shares her experience with us. In this episode, Colette tells us about her son who has a diagnosis of DLD as well as global apraxia, dyslexia, and ADD (attention deficit disorder). She tells us about the ups and downs and about all the people who make up their supportive village. The episode is also broadcast in French. Let's celebrate this year's International DLD Awareness Day (Oct 14, 2022) by spreading the word about DLD. You can start by sharing this podcast episode with your friends.
