ELLeN stands for English Language Learning & Neurodiversity.  Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, the goals of ELLeN are to strengthen teacher education for inclusion by bridging the distance between future English teachers and neurodivergent learners. 

There are several ways we will work to achieve this goal:

  • Deepening the base of knowledge regarding learners who are neurodivergent.
  • Engaging in inquiry-based learning to cultivate a reflective habitus.
  • Listening to neurodivergent learners in participatory research processes.
