Developmental Language Disorder is a delay in the mastery of language skills in children who have no sensory impairment, intellectual disability, or other developmental delays. The CLD unit helps children with Developmental Language Disorder to overcome their language delay/deficits through various language facilitating techniques. Activities of the clinic include both assessment and management of children with developmental language disorders. Intervention services in the CLD unit incorporate group therapy sessions as well as individual sessions focusing on language, phonological awareness, emergent literacy skills, and auditory processing. Considering the language age of each child, they are enrolled in different groups: BUDS (below two years of language age), BLOSSOM (within the language age of 2-3 years), OR FLOWERS (above three years of language age). Parent empowerment is done through direct parent education with active involvement in therapy and observation sessions to enable the learning of stimulation techniques for use within the home. Promoting research in the areas of language acquisition, bilingualism and emergent literacy is also our mission.
