Description: 
A Chance to Talk was a successful pilot initiative which improved the communication skills of 4-7 year olds in primary schools with impact on pupil outcomes. It provided a model of commissioning support for all children's speech, language and communication across a cluster of primary schools. Key outcomes of A Chance to Talk: • Children made, on average, 50% more progress in reading. • Over 80% of the children with delayed language caught up with their peers. • Children with delayed language made significant progress after the Talk Boost intervention in language tests. Gains ranged from between 9 and 18 months progress following the intervention. • 100% of parents of children with SLCN were highly satisfied with the A Chance to Talk school-based model.
