In this podcast, Alex Cross, PhD candidate at the University of Western Ontario, talks about the interrelationship between language and math. She also talks about the three ways by which we can represent quantities. Some are more language based than others. This podcast provides great tips for parents and educators who work with children who have difficulties with language and/or math. We also talk about her YouTube video which explains a bit about DLD in the classroom, most particularly as it pertains to sciences. Here is the link.
Alex also talks about her favorite resource: www.RADLD.org. Check out this amazing website on DLD.
