Constable Talk Boost Project

Constable Talk Boost Project

The Constable Talk Boost project was funded by the Constable Educational Trust to support primary-aged children with difficulties speaking and understanding language in five London local authorities

Through this project, training will be provided to practitioners in at least 60 primary schools across 5 local authorities so that they can deliver two I CAN interventions: Talk Boost Key Stage 1 and Talk Boost Key Stage 2

 

                      

Talk Boost KS1

Talk Boost KS1 is a targeted intervention for 4-7 year old children with difficulties speaking and understanding language, including children in Reception classes. The programme aims to boost children’s progress in speaking and understanding language by an average of 9-18 months after a ten-week intervention. 

The TBKS1 training consists of two online training sessions, on consecutive days, lasting 2 – 2 ½ hours each​ and requires the attendance of two staff members from each setting (1 Teacher & 1 TA ideally from the same class).
