ICAN Early Language Development Programme (ELDP)

BHT Early Education and Training's ICAN Early Language Development Programme (ELDP) is designed to improve early speech, language and communication development amongst 0-5s (primarily focusing on 0-2 year olds). The programme has been built on learning from previous early year’s speech, language and communication development programmes, including Every Child a Talker (ECaT) and Early Talk 0-3.
