Event Details

Early Talk Boost is a targeted intervention aimed at 3-4 year old children with delayed language development helping to boost their language skills to narrow the gap between them and their peers.

Children for whom the intervention is designed for typically have:

• Difficulty listening/paying attention
• Poor vocabulary
• Difficulty understanding language
• Difficulty organising and using language
• Immature sentences
• Difficulty explaining or describing
• Difficulty taking turns

Evaluation by the developer of Early Talk Boost, I CAN, shows that after Early Talk Boost, children make statistically significant progress in their early language. On average they make 6 months progress after a nine week intervention helping them to catch up with other children their age. This is twice the progress of children not having the intervention.

Early Talk Boost training is for early years practitioners working with groups of 3-4 year olds in early years settings. The training will give participants the skills and knowledge to understand the rationale behind Early Talk Boost, identify appropriate children, measure their progress and deliver the intervention successfully.
The training is delivered by Joanne Kennedy, an Associate Teacher for Sunningdale School and the Language & Learning Partnership, who has many years’ experience of supporting children with complex needs within education. Joanne is licensed by I CAN to deliver talk Boost training.

The cost of the programme per trainee pair is £120 plus £450 for an Early Talk Boost Intervention Pack (Intervention Manual, Parent Training, Tracker Tool, Toolkit and 10 x 8 Jake and Tizzy story books) which is purchased directly from I CAN. You will receive an invoice for £670 upon registration, payable in advance of the training to cover the cost of the starter kit.
