Description

Following on from the success of the Talk Boost KS1 intervention for 4-7 year olds, which has been rolled out across more than 2,500 schools and helped over 58,000 children, we are pleased to announce the launch of Early Talk Boost. Early Talk Boost is a targeted intervention for school staff and nursery staff aimed at 3-5 year old children with delayed language development helping to boost their language skills to narrow the gap between them and their peers.

*To be able to deliver the intervention, each school must also purchase the Early Talk Boost Intervention Pack (£450) if this is not already available in the school. Access to the Intervention Pack, including the Participant Handbook, is required during the training session. The Early Talk Boost Intervention Pack is available from the ICAN charity on 020 7843 2552.

Who is the Early Talk Boost intervention aimed at?

The Early Talk Boost intervention is designed for children aged 3-4 with delayed language development, typically those who have:

-Difficulty listening/paying attention
-Poor vocabulary
-Difficulty understanding language
-Difficulty organising and using language
-Immature sentences
-Difficulty explaining or describing
-Difficulty taking turns

This means children who have intact language learning ability in themselves but for some reason haven’t had the opportunity to develop age-appropriate language skills.

How is the group intervention delivered?

The intervention is delivered 3 times per week during circle/story time by a trained early years practitioner to a group of up to 8 children over a 9 week period. The intervention is supported by an initial training package and includes an Early Talk Boost Tracker to help identify appropriate children for the intervention and to measure their progress. The intervention also includes a workshop for parents/carers to enable them to develop children’s communication and language skills at home.

Who is Early Talk Boost training for?

Early Talk Boost training is for early years practitioners working with groups of 3-4 year olds in early years settings.

What will I learn?

The training will give participants the skills and knowledge to understand the rationale behind Early Talk Boost, identify appropriate children, measure their progress and deliver the intervention successfully.


*** PLEASE NOTE - In order to deliver the intervention, and additional purchase of resources for your school is required. The Early Talk Boost Intervention Pack (Intervention Manual, Parent Training, Tracker Tool, Toolkit and 10 x 8 Jake and Tizzy story books) are purchased from the ICAN charity at a cost of £450 per pack. ***
