I CAN Talk Boost (yr AND KS1)

Ideal for
Reception and KS1 teachers and teaching assistants

Talk Boost KS1 is a targeted and evidence-based intervention programme, which supports language delayed children in Reception and Key Stage One (KS1) to make progress with their language and communication skills. The programme is delivered in primary schools by classroom teachers and assistants and provides a structured programme that accelerates children’s progress in language and communication by an average of 18 months after a ten week intervention.

The intervention is designed to improve the language and communication skills of 4 to 7 year olds. It comprises three 30–40 minute group sessions a week, delivered over a 10-week period by a trained teaching assistant.

In addition to this the teacher will run a weekly whole-class activity and there are activities that can be practised at home.

This training course is designed for teachers and teaching assistants who will be delivering the intervention and will be delivered by I CAN Licensees.
