Supporting your ELSA to support your vulnerable children
ELSAs are Emotional Literacy Support Assistants. They are teaching assistants who have received specific additional training from educational psychologists on aspects of emotional literacy including emotional awareness, self-esteem, anger management, social and friendship skills, social communication difficulties, loss, bereavement and family break-up. ELSAs should receive supervision from educational psychologists once every half term in a local group of either primary or secondary ELSAs. This package offers Schools the chance to purchase regular EP led supervision for our ELSAs which would also include CPD.
