What is Early Talk Boost?
Early Talk Boost is a targeted intervention aimed at 3-4 year old children with delayed language development. The ICAN Evaluation Report shows that after Early Talk Boost, children make statistically significant progress in their early language. On average they make 6 months progress after a nine- week intervention helping them to catch up with other children their age. This is twice the amount of progress of children not having the intervention.

The Early Talk Boost intervention is designed for children aged 3-4 with delayed language development.
How is the intervention delivered?
The group is delivered 3 times per week during circle/story time by a trained early years practitioner to a group of up to 8 children over a 9- week period. The Early Talk Boost Tracker helps to identify appropriate children for the intervention and to measure their progress. The intervention also includes a workshop for parents/carers to enable them to develop children’s communication and language skills at home.
