The Communication Centre provides services and support for people with DLD and their loved ones. The services are free of charge and available throughout Finland.
Peer support is often needed and appreciated by families with a child who has been diagnosed with DLD. Parents hope to connect with others in the same situation. Peer support is also appreciated by many teens and adults who were diagnosed as children. Often they are looking for opportunities to share their experiences of living with DLD. Peer support provides everyday tips for families and helps them prepare for future challenges. For teens and adults, it offers a sense of belonging and the opportunity to share life experiences with people in similar circumstances.
