Talk Boost KS1
This course is now cancelled
Who should attend:

Reception, Year One and Year Two Teachers and/or Teaching Assistants. N.B. It is ideal if staff can attend the training in teacher/TA pairs as delivery of the intervention involves them working together.

Talk Boost is an evidenced programme for 4 to 7 year olds which helps children with delayed language skills to catch up with their peers. It is a 10-week intervention delivered 3 times a week by a trained teaching assistant. There are also simple whole class activities carried out by the teacher.

It works best for children with delayed language development who are likely to be able to ‘catch up’ and is not designed for children who have speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) that are likely to be longer term.

A ‘speech, language and communication tracker’ is included in the pack which means teaching staff can measure children’s language levels before and after the programme.  This lets them see who would benefit from the programme and is used to measure how successful it is.
