ELR Software produces a range of computer programs designed by speech pathologists for speech, language & literacy intervention. Our programs may be used interactively within therapy sessions, to increase efficiency in service delivery, and to improve access to the Internet for people with special needs. We are also available as consultants to clinicians and research projects in the fields of literacy and accessibility issues associated with the Internet.
The aim of this newsletter is to inform you of developments and changes to our major products eLr (Extra Language Resources), Build-a-Sentence and Word Meanings. We welcome the opportunity for feedback and questions, and will be pleased to consider including reader contributions and announcements.
This Newsletter (and previous editions) as well as a "print-ready" PDF version of the current edition is available online at www.elr.com.au/news. An email version is also sent monthly to members of our mailing list (See Subscribing/Unsubscribing).
In this issue -
As a number of you are probably aware, ELR Software is based in East Gippsland, Victoria, and this summer has seen a prolonged drought merge into catastrophic fire. Thankfully, none of our small team has been hurt or lost property. But the events have been stressful and disruptive to the extent that, for the first time in 20 years, we've made no new eLr content for the month. As we write this, the worst seems over, and hopefully "normal services" will now resume. If you are an eLr subscriber who has been impacted by fire, please contact us to have your subscription fee waived.
If you are inclined to make a donation to assist either those that have been affected, or especially the teams that have prevented even more widespread damage and assisted others, your contribution is bound to be appreciated. The website www.bushfiresupport.com.au is a useful and safe starting place to find a particular charity or service you'd like to support.We'd also like to encourage Australians especially, to consider how they as individuals may be able to influence political action on man-made climate change.
As an occasional feature of this Newsletter, we include simple, unpaid announcements of products developed by other small, independent developers, who, like ourselves, are practising clinicians who have put their ideas and experience into resource materials for general distribution. Links and brief information about these sites may be found at www.elr.com.au/links/developers.htm. To date we have listed -
