ELS is an organisation dedicated to the support of children with learning differences and developmental delays. This is achieved through research and development of educational methods and materials as well as providing training and support to teachers, parents, caregivers and professionals who work with children having individualised and specialised needs.
ELS provides an individualised learning programme with a developmental focus. It is used by ELS “educational therapists”, working one on one with individual children, or in educational therapeutic support of children following a home schooling programme. It is also used within specialised schooling environments as the “educational therapeutic programme” alongside the national curriculum followed by the school.
As ELS is an individualised learning programme with a developmental focus, it is not restricted to the child with “special needs”. It can be used with a neurotypically developing child, ensuring early childhood development of language, auditory and visual perceptual skills, literacy and numeracy, which form the core components of therapy.
ELS is a dynamic programme in that it is constantly revised as new research reveals greater understanding of how our brains receive, process and output information.
