Welcome to NELI

The NELI programme provides schools with a way of identifying early language difficulties and is proven to improve children's language skills and behaviour in school.

What is the NELI Programme?

The NELI Programme, provided by OxEd and Assessment, is an integrated programme, for 4–5 year olds, that is proven to improve language and behaviour. The Programme consists of:

LanguageScreen Assessment App

LanguageScreen is a simple digital assessment, administered in 10-15 minutes by TAs or teachers, to assess children’s speaking and listening skills. LanguageScreen is the very best way to select children for the NELI programme and enables schools to track children’s progress accurately.

In addition, we offer regular webinars on hot topics and a Refresher Course for trained NELI practitioners.
