Eliciting Language Samples for Analysis
Eliciting Language Samples for Analysis (ELSA) is a language elicitation protocol developed by Dr. Helen Tager-Flusberg and colleagues at Boston University’s Center for Autism Research Excellence. Developed in 2016, ELSA is an innovative method for assessing improvements in language and communication skills.
