Talk Boost is a targeted and evidence-based intervention, which supports language delayed children to make significant progress with their language and communication skills. During the pilot of the project, some children were found to improve their communication by 12-18 months in a ten week period!
In total 120 activities are delivered during the 10-week intervention period. Children are taught in small groups three times a week by teachers and teaching assistants but this is supplemented by whole-class activities so a focus on language permeates the wider classroom.
Each session draws on four activities that cover the key components of language - Listening and Attention, Vocabulary, Sentence Building, Storytelling and Conversations.
