Course Content/Objectives

Early Talk Boost is a targeted intervention aimed at children aged 3 years 0 months to 4 years 6 months with delayed language development helping to boost their language skills to help narrow the gap between them and their peers. ICAN’s Evaluation Report shows that after Early Talk Boost, children make statistically significant progress in their early language. On average they make 6 months progress after a nine week intervention helping them to catch up with other children their age. This is twice the amount of progress of children not having the intervention.


The intervention is delivered 3 times per week by a trained early years’ practitioner to a group of up to 8 children over a nine 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.

Outcomes sought

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.
