Article published with Professor Andrea Samson (Fribourg University, Switzerland), Dr Neeltje van den Bedem & Professor Carolien Rieffe (both Leiden University, Netherlands) entitled, “Positive Aspects of Emotional Competence in Preventing Internalizing Symptoms in Children with and without Developmental Language Disorder: A Longitudinal Approach” in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders. In this paper, we conclude that children with DLD are likely to benefit from interventions aimed at improving their emotion awareness in addition to language interventions.
