Early Talk Boost Training

Early Talk Boost is an evidence-based targeted intervention aimed at children, aged 3-4, who need help with talking and understanding words and/or need help to boost their language skills to narrow the gaps between them and their peers. 

Evidence suggests that Early Talk Boost can accelerate a child’s progress in language and communication by an average of 6 months during the 9-week programme. 

Children, who are selected to take part in Early Talk Boost, will attend three sessions per week, each lasting 15-20 minutes. The activities, in the session, cover the foundation skills in speech, language and communication that children need for learning and understanding new words, as well as having conversations. 



We want to deliver Early Talk Boost. What are the next steps?

There are two parts to Early Talk Boost:

  1. Attend Early Talk Boost training with a licenced tutor.
  2. Purchase the Early Talk Boost Intervention Pack.

Approach to implementing the intervention, including how to:
