Early Talk Boost
Thursday 28th October 2021, 9:30 – 3:30 Full day

Areas Covered: -

Early Talk Boost is a language intervention designed by ICAN and delivered by a Licensed Tutor. It is a targeted and evidence-based intervention programme for 3-4 year old children whose language development is delayed.  The intervention is delivered 3 times a week for 9 weeks by a trained early years practitioner to a group of up to 8 children. It focuses on developing listening and attention skills, vocabulary, understanding language, building sentences and social communication skills.


OFSTED evaluates how well pupils develop and apply their skills and communication and how well communication is taught.  They also focus on how schools narrow the gap between children with the lowest and highest attainment. EarlyTalk Boost helps schools to develop children’s communication and languageskills,narrowingthegapbetween3-4yearolds with language delay and theirpeers.
