Subject: New Website/'eLr' - Extra Language Resources

Dear Colleague,

As a fellow Speech Pathologist or language/literacy specialist, I invite you to 
visit eLr ("Extra Language Resources"), an interactive resources Web site, 
http://www.elr.com.au . A free trial is available at 
http://www.elr.com.au/elrtrial.htm via a temporary registration (you may 
request another any time you wish).

eLr currently has over 2,000 separate interactive activities, each comprising 
multiple items, covering some 425 target areas in Phonology, Phonemic Awareness 
and Reading and Spelling. New activities are continually being prepared - for 
example, we are currently working on Semantics, which will include additional 
activities for acquired (aphasia) and developmental language disorders. The eLr 
site features both PCS and COMPIC pictographs, as well as many text based 
exercises.

This site and all activities have been produced by myself (Toni Seiler) and Anna 
Breakell (practicing Speech Pathologists) and my husband Rob Seiler, a computer 
programmer. Our aim is to provide speech, language and literacy specialists, 
teachers and parents with a comprehensive set of resources which can be accessed 
anywhere directly from the Web.

Subscribers to the site are able to open each specific task(s) from an on-line, 
goal orientated Directory, and are also able to provide their own clients free 
"Guest" access to enable home practice. All users have immediate access to new 
materials or revisions as they occur.

To use eLr, you will need MS Internet Explorer (version 4.1 or higher) for 
Windows as the eLr site relies extensively on dynamic HTML features that other 
browsers and operating systems do not yet offer. To get a better understanding of 
our design principles and clinical usage we suggest you also read -

"eLr Design Principles" - http://www.elr.com.au/support/design.htm
"Hints for using eLr" - http://www.elr.com.au/support/elrhints.htm
and "FAQ's" - http://www.elr.com.au/support/elrfaq.htm

We would welcome any feedback and please feel free to add a link to eLr on your 
site if you wish.

Thank you
