Information for Specialist Teachers: Benefits of Elklan Training

Once a member of staff in a school or Early Years setting has been trained using an Elklan course they are of huge benefit because they:

  • Can liaise efficiently with the advisory support services
  • Share a common language which reduces the time needed to explain information and so improves efficiency
  • Understand why they are being asked to support a child in a specific way
  • Know how to modify their interactions with the children
  • Change the way they speak to children so they understand more of what is said
  • Use modelling to encourage talking
  • Understand the development of speech sounds and why children have problems, they are taught simple strategies to help the child.
  • Know how to support a child with interaction difficulties
  • Can manage some children themselves and know which need to be referred on for more assessment
