The fantastic work of these Bradford schools has also been celebrated by The Communication Trust in their newsletter.

And here's what these schools are saying about Elklan!

“The Elklan course has given me the skills and knowledge I need to narrow the learning gap of a child with communication needs. I am using what I have learnt in my work everyday”

“I have gathered brilliant ideas and resources to help me support children with communication difficulties. I have also realised that the small things; modelling words and sentences and using more visual aids, can make a massive difference to a child. I would recommend Elklan to everyone!”

“What I have learnt on the course has given me the confidence to speak out and feedback to my team in the Nursery about how they can adapt their own language when working with children”

"Becoming a Communication Friendly School has resulted in improved learning and communication across school and in all year groups. There has also been a noticeable increase in independence."
