TalkBoost and Early TalkBoost Training
ChildSpeech has eight licensed tutors for this evidence based approach. It provides everything a school needs for a teaching assistant to deliver a wave 2 intervention for children who need some help with their speech and language skills in key stage 1.
TalkBoost supports language delayed children in Key Stage 1 and can boost a child’s communication by an average of eighteen months after ten weeks of intervention. TalkBoost has been developed by I CAN and The Communication Trust – leaders in the field of speech, language and communication.
ChildSpeech can offer TalkBoost on its own or in combination with a whole school package of intervention. Get in touch via our contact page to find out more.
What is Early Talk Boost?
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 help narrow the gap between them and their peers.
Findings show 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 amount of progress of children not having the intervention
Anne Marie has been a pleasure to work with. She has an excellent understanding of how schools work and the demands and pressure that are placed upon teachers. She assisted me the Senco in devising a through action plan where development areas have been identified and are being worked towards. She has been extremely knowledgeable and has been able to provide a wealth of knowledge and skill and has been excellent in sign posting me to other websites and agencies that can support me in implementing the actions.
The staff training was excellent and staff were enthusiastic and extremely positive about the impact of talk boost and other speaking and listening provisions in the classrooms. This has carried on in to the assessments that the teachers are doing and I’ve received some excellent feedback about the quality of the assessment and how it has helped to inform their knowledge of their children and how revealing it has been.
