Elklan* was established in 1999 by two experienced speech and language therapists Liz Elks and Henrietta McLachlan in response to a demand for training to be delivered by speech and language therapists to education staff to enable them to be more effective in their support of children with speech, language and communication need (SLCN).
Over a period of 11 years Elklan has trained over 1,200 speech and language therapists to be Elklan tutors and over 550 specialist advisory teachers to work in a co-tutor role. Most of the trainers work in the UK but in recent years there are increasing number of tutors in Ireland, Australia, Luxembourg and The Falkland Islands.
The Language Support Service has staff specially trained to deliver Elklan*.
