Okay, so I'm betting people are tired of my tweet floods on #impsci but bear with me for one more.
I wrote down some thoughts for our field as I was coming home on the train from #discience19, but amtrak wifi wasn't working. so... here are my thoughts for *our field*. #slpeeps, #wespeechies, folks who study #devlangdis (especially in the US) I'm talking to us.
There’s an urgency to a lot of the work being done at #discience19 that seems to be missing from our work as #wespeechies. I frequently heard that the (cancer, stroke, mental health, etc.) work can’t wait for us researchers to be sure it works or for a few R01 cycles to pass. 1/

First session this afternoon by @HilaryLowe2 looking at universal vocab intervention for adolescents w/ language disorder #Naplic19 #DevLangDis
@HilaryLowe2 Whole-class Rx important - evidence for what we know works for teaching vocab & that teachers need to teach vocab, but that in-depth vocab instruction in schools reported to be minimal #Naplic19 #DevLangDis
In @HilaryLowe2 's research, the vocab rx was embedded into the classroom and delivered by the classroom teachers. Focus was on science vocabulary, comparing 'usual' teaching & the experimental approach. #Naplic19

Attending the wonderful #naplic19 conference. Theme for today 'Growing up with Developmental Language Disorder' #DevLangDis
Our first speaker is a young person with #DevLangDis. As we know, #DevLangDis is a life-long difficulty & doesn't just go away. Services in secondary school & beyond is essential. #naplic19
Key take-homes: 1) lack of vocabulary knowledge impacts on comprehension & expression, 2) links w/ language & stress/anxiety/panic, 3) importance of explaining what #DevLangDis is to the children w/ DLD & their families #naplic19

The February issue of @ASHAleader features responses to the December 2018 articles on SLI vs. #devlangdis. I selected some quotes that I consider powerful, but I invite you to read the full letters and continue to be part of this important discussion. #DLD #DLDawareness
Elena Plante writes “Cut scores that accurately identify disorders are specific to the test used and can be very different across tests.”
Rebecca Vance writes “…by excluding children with nonverbal IQ scores between 75 and 85, researchers cannot expect results to generalize to the populations served by practicing clinicians.”

Today is Developmental Language Disorder Awareness Day. If you want to know more about #DevLangDis , head over to the @RADLDcam timeline rapido.

If you want to know how #DevLangDis affects my family, here’s a thread from last year 👇
Since that thread, things have gone really well. My communication difficulties with my eldest are now very different.

T’s doing A-Level Physics. I don’t understand what he’s on about - but it’s because I’m hopeless at physics, not because he has a language disorder /2
The look of gentle exasperation on his face when he tries to explain simple harmonic particle motion to me for the third time running makes me well up, for all the right reasons 😀
