Early Talk Boost is a highly evidence based language program from ICAN. The language program aims to support children aged 3-4 who have been identified as having delayed language development. On average children have been found to make up to 6 months progress as a result of the 9 week intervention program, helping them to close the language gap between them and their peers.
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.
This intervention requires 2 practitioners from each setting to attend the training so that the program can be rolled out effectively.
Before the training your setting must purchase 1 Early Talk Boost Kit per training pair directly from ICAN at a cost of £500.
Learners should be aware that the cost of this kit from ICAN will be increasing to £550 in January.
Early Years Pupil Premium funding could be used to support the purchase of the kit. Please click on the link to order your kits: https://speechandlanguage.org.uk/shop-for-educators/early-talk-boost-intervention-pack/
Alternatively SfYC have a few 2016 versions that you can purchase at a reduced price of £300. Email HEYTC@hants.gov.uk - You will need the licenced tutor’s name to purchase the pack, the tutor for this course is “Jennifer Done”.
Please note that practitioners must have their kits to hand during the training. Practitioners will not be able to participate in this training without the kit.
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 program.
