Talk Boost

Description: 
Talk Boost is a targeted intervention that narrows the gap between 4-7 year olds with language delay and their peers. It is a 10-week programme delivered by trained teaching assistants that can boost a child’s communication by up to 18 months. This has been shown to have an impact on progress in reading – 90% of children with delayed language met or exceeded progress in reading after Talk Boost. Talk Boost helps children with delayed language development who would not usually qualify for specialist help, but are not thriving at school because of a speech and language need.
