Children and adolescents with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) are at increased risk for the development of psychosocial problems compared to their peers without DLD. There is much individual variation within the group of children with DLD regarding their level and development of psychosocial problems. However, there is no systematic relationship between the severity of children’s communication problems and their psychosocial problems.
In her dissertation work Neeltje van den Bedem aimed to gain better understanding of risk and protective factors for the development of psychosocial problems of children with DLD.
Neeltje van den Bedem will defend her dissertation during a public defence on March 4 at 15:00-15:45 at Leiden University.
