About this Event

Please note that schools will be charged £10 per participant for this training

This training is delivered over two sessions. Both sessions must be attended:

Tuesday 1/12/20 4-6pm

Tuesday 15/12/20 4-6pm

Early Talk Boost training is aimed at nursery staff and Early Years Practitioners working with groups of children aged 3 years 0 months to 4 years 6 months in early years’ settings.

This training will enable practitioners to deliver Early Talk Boost in their nursery setting during session 2020/21. Therefore, we would be grateful if applicants can ensure that they are placed in a nursery setting for this session in order to deliver Early Talk Boost.

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.
