TalkBoost KS2

Following a successful bid for funding the Telford and Wrekin LSAT Team is in a position to be able to offer training for ICAN’s Talk Boost KS2 programme free of charge to all Junior, Primary and Secondary schools in Telford.

Thursday 29 June 2023
9am - 3pm
Microsoft Teams

Please note, this is likely to be the last opportunity to access this free of charge.

What is TalkBoost KS2?

Talk Boost KS2 is a targeted intervention aimed at children 7-10 years old with delayed language, aiming to boost their language skills
and help them to catch up with their peers. The programme aims to accelerate children’s progress in language and communication,
after an eight week intervention.

Why should you sign up?

As previously communicated, The Speech and Language Therapy Team are moving towards a graduated response model which, for
some children, will involve collating evidence of having implemented one of the recognised screening and intervention tools prior to
referral. Being able to deliver TalkBoost KS2 in your school will enable you to evidence your graduated response.

What’s included?

  • For Junior and Primary schools only:
    One pack of resources per school (RRP £500).
  • A full day of online training for 2 members of staff (this should be a class teacher and TA who will be overseeing and delivering
    the intervention together)

For secondary schools:

We recognise that not all secondary schools will need to carry out this intervention. We are offering free training for 2 members of staff from your school and will then have packs of resources that we can loan out for secondary schools who have students in Years 7/8 who will benefit.

We will ask our Primary and Junior schools to indicate during transition any Y6 students who are coming up in September who they feel would benefit. You will not be able to borrow the resources and deliver the intervention unless someone has had the training.

The closing date for signing up is: Thursday 15 June 2023.
