I have recently trained as an ELSA in my primary school where I have been working for nearly 10 years. I am also a HLTA and do enjoy my job. Can anyone please tell me what initial assessments you carry out on children who have been put forward for ELSA. For the under 8 years I use Boxall but have nothing in place at present for the over 8s except for the basic assessment in the ELSA pack. Look forward to your ideas. Thanks.
