The Bi-SLI 2020 is the 3rd Bi-SLI conference focussing on research related to language acquisition in bi/multilingual children with SLI/DLD, as compared to language acquisition in typically developing (TD) bi/multilingual children.

To address the issue of properly diagnosing bi/multilingual children with SLI/DLD in SLT caseloads, the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action IS0804 ‘Language Impairment in a Multilingual Society: Linguistic Patterns and the Road to Assessment’ developed the LITMUS (Language Impairment Testing in Multilingual Settings) tools series that were designed to facilitate the identification of SLI/DLD in bi/multilingual children.

They would like to invite researchers who wish to share findings related to language acquisition in bilingual/multilingual children with SLI/DLD as compared to bilingual/multilingual children that are typically developing.
