Thrieve and Jigsaw
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. We assess children during their first term when they turn three using the I can tracker, if any children fall into the slightly below expected development, we invite them to take part in our I can program. The children attend for three half hour sessions a week for nine weeks. The children take home a different book each week, which is shared during each of the sessions.
Most of the staff are also trained in Hanen Teacher Talk language program, which provides the staff with core strategies from the Learning Language and Loving It Program for Early Childhood Educators to help us create a rich and stimulating language-learning environments for the young children we work with. One staff memberhas also trained in the ELKAN language program .
