What does an ELSA do? Presentation for children (or adults)

Two people contacted me this week asking if I had anything to help explain the role of an ELSA to children. After having a bit of a search on the internet I found that School counselors in America use a ‘First Aid Kit’ to introduce their role.

This kit consists of the following:

  • Tissues
  • Toothpicks
  • Chocolate bar
  • Star
  • Penny
  • Plaster
  • Swimming ring
  • Eraser
  • Cotton Wool Ball
  • Watch

Each item represent a reminder of an aspect of the job. I have put together an ELSA Presentation that you could perhaps show to children in assembly. I would photograph your kit though and insert your images into the presentation. It will make more sense to them.

Thank you so much to Jill who has shared a photo of her kit! I love it!
