Q: What do Leading Experts Say about ELA?

"This is the most exciting collection of therapy material that I have ever seen... J. Stark has accomplished what most of us have always dreamed about doing, which is to have the world of daily living, for all our patients, within our grasp." 

Prof. Audrey L. Holland, Ph.D.

"ELA allows for the systematic assessment of a patient's ability to process various aspects of lexical, morphological and syntactic structure. The proper use of this test should allow the clinician to detect even highly specific linguistic deficits."

Prof. Alfonso Caramazza, Ph.D.
