Is it possible to differentiate multilingual children and children with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD)?

Languages, Society and Policy (LSP) is the Multilingualism: Empowering Individuals, Transforming Societies (MEITS) Project's policy journal. LSP publishes high-quality peer-reviewed language research in accessible and non-technical language to promote policy engagement and provide expertise to policy makers, journalists and stakeholders in education, health, business and elsewhere.

This paper by Maria Garraffa, Maria Vender, Antonella Sorace and Maria Teresa Guasti considers why it's important to differentiate multilingual children and children with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD).
