I CAN Early Talk Boost is a pre-school language intervention designed for children aged 3-4 years who have delayed language development. The intervention helps to boost their language skills, helping to narrow achievement gaps between them and their peers (please see below for important information about the resources required to deliver this intervention).
Findings show that, after taking part in Early Talk Boost, children make, on average, 6 months progress after a nine week intervention. This is twice the amount of progress than children not having the intervention, making this an excellent use of the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP).
This online Zoom training course is designed for early years practitioners who will be delivering the intervention in early years settings, and is delivered by qualified I CAN Licensees.
There is an additional cost for resources, details below.
This section includes important information - please read carefully.
Each setting attending the training MUST purchase an exciting and comprehensive toolkit which includes all the materials and resources required to successfully deliver this intervention. The 'one off' cost of the toolkit is £500, which includes one participant book. All participants will be provided with an electronic version of the participants book.
This training is aimed at experienced practitioners, however settings may wish to book a place for more than one practitioner, or attend as a whole setting.
If you have already purchased the ICAN Early Talk Boost resources, you can book additional practitioners to be trained.
As this is an intervention programme, ICAN do not allow the training course to be delivered without the resources.
Following confirmation of your place you will be contacted by email with details of how to order your resources.
Please note that zoom courses are not recorded.
