Development Language Disorder Awareness Day - Friday 16th October

Arklow Municipal District lit up the 19 Arches bridge in yellow to support the Developmental Language Disorder Awareness Campaign(DLD).  DLD is diagnosed when children fail to acquire their own language for no obvious reason. This results in children who have difficulty understanding what people say to them, and struggle to articulate their ideas and feelings. DLD is a hidden disorder that often goes unidentified.
