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

Call for Papers:

We are happy to announce that Bi-SLI 2020 will be held in Galway, Ireland 14-16 June 2020
Bi-SLI 2020 is the 3rd Bi-SLI conference focusing 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 (additional comparisons may be made with bi/multilingual children with ASD or other developmental disorders).

Confirmed keynote speakers at Bi-SLI 2020 are:

Prof Sharon Armon-Lotem (Bar-Ilan University)
Prof Elma Blom (University of Utrecht)
Prof Theo Marinis (University of Konstanz)

We 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.

Bi-SLI conferences follow on from the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action IS0804 ‘Language Impairment in a Multilingual Society: Linguistic Patterns and the Road to Assessment’ that addressed the issue of properly diagnosing bi/multilingual children with SLI/DLD in SLT caseloads. During the Bi-SLI COST Action the LITMUS (Language Impairment Testing in Multilingual Settings) tools were developed with the aim to facilitate the identification of SLI/DLD in bi/multilingual children.

Further details about BI-SLI 2020 can be found on the conference website:
