Communication and Interaction

Talk Boost KS1
Friday 23rd November 2018, Full Day 09:00 - 15:30

Who is it for:

Teacher and teaching assistant pairs.

Areas Covered:

Talk Boost is a language group programme designed by I CAN. It is a targeted and evidence-based intervention programme, which supports language delayed children in Reception and Key Stage One to make progress with their language and communication skills.  Talk Boost provides a structured programme that accelerates children’s progress in language and communication by an average of 18 months after a 10 week intervention.

Course Outcomes:

After the course staff will be able to:

  • Identify vulnerable learner
  • Provide a structured evidence based programme that accelerates children’s progress in language and communication
  • Support the foundation language skills that lead to Phonics
  • Increase classroom participation by improving confidence and skills in listening, vocabulary, narrative, sentence building and conversation

OFSTED now 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. Talk Boost KS1 helps schools develop children’s communication skills, narrowing the gap between 4-7 year olds with language delay and their peers.
