Narrows the gap between 4-7 year olds with language delay and their peers.


What is Talk Boost?

Talk Boost is a targeted intervention designed to improve the language and communication skills of 4-7 year olds whose language skills are below the average for their age.

Talk Boost KS1 can help schools raise Reception and KS1 achievement by:

  • identifying vulnerable learners

  • providing a structured evidence-based programme that accelerates children's progress in language and communication

  • supporting the foundation language skills that lead to phonics

  • increasing classroom participation by improving confidence in listening, vocabulary, narrative, conversation and narrative

How long is the programme?

It comprises of three 30-40 minute group sessions each week, delivered over a period of 10 weeks. 

What does it target?

Talk Boost breaks language and communication down into five component parts, with a focus on a specific area each week :

  • Attention and listening

  • Vocabulary

  • Building Sentences

  • Telling stories

  • Conversations

Classroom link

Throughout the programme there are a number of activities for the teacher to link to whole class work, allowing reinforcement and evidence of speaking and listening from the participating children.
