Case Study

Specific Language Impairment (SLI) is a developmental disorder which affects 6-7% of UK schoolchildren. Children with SLI display difficulties with many aspects of language, but have far fewer problems with non-verbal tasks. Unfortunately, very little is known about SLI – especially when compared to dyslexia – related to SLI but not as severe.
