Using eLIPS

eLIPS is an observational tool designed to promote discussion among practitioners about early language development and to provide insight about how best to support early language in addressing the attainment challenge.

Fife Council has recently introduced eLIPS into all of their Nursery Schools and Family Nurture Centres, where it will be used as an observational tool to help staff to support early language development

Practitioners can use eLIPS to observe the development of expressive language (saying) and receptive language (understanding) as well as the emergence of social communication skills

The observations required for eLIPS are made while children are playing, which means that eLIPSis based on naturalistic and child-centred methods.
