Early Talk Boost

Tuesday 4 June 2024 - 9.30am to 4.00pm - Face-to-Face, Winchester

Early Talk Boost is a targeted intervention aimed at 3-4 year old children who need help with talking and understanding words, helping to boost their language skills to narrow the gap between them and their peers. The programme aims to accelerate children’s progress in language and communication by an average of 6 months, after a 9 week intervention. The intervention pack comes with everything you need to deliver the program, including a tracker, session plans and books for families.

This full day training will give practitioners the skills and knowledge to understand the rationale behind Early Talk Boost, identify appropriate children, deliver the intervention and measure the children’s progress.

At least 2 practitioners from each setting must attend the training so that the intervention can be rolled out effectively.

Before the training you must purchase an Early Talk Boost Intervention Pack for your setting at a one-off cost of £550.  Please purchase these from Speech and Language UK directly here: https://speechandlanguage.org.uk/shop-for-educators/early-talk-boost-intervention-pack-pre-order/ entering the licensee name “Jennifer Done”.

Early Years Pupil Premium funding could be used to support the purchase of the Intervention Pack.

Please note that practitioners must have their packs to hand during the training. Practitioners will not be able to participate in this training without the pack.

Childminders are welcome to attend this training however they will need a group of children aged 3-4 presenting with a language delay in order to run the intervention.
