Using Talk Boost can significantly improve children’s talking and understanding of words. Two thirds of children make good progress after just eight to ten weeks of the programme.
Frequently asked questions
Talk Boost is a catch-up programme for children who are behind with talking and understanding words to boost their language skills. Differentiated for children between the ages of 3-10 years, the programme aims to accelerate children’s progress in language skills by an average of six months, after a nine-week intervention.
In addition, all of our Talk Boost programmes can also be used to demonstrate to Ofsted how you are focusing on developing staff skills.

We have developed a brand-new programme trackers tool for Talk Boost. Our tracker will help you identify which children would benefit the most from Talk Boost and show their progress before and after the programme. The new tracker will provide a better user experience, enhanced reporting, and the option for organisations to get aggregate data from multiple schools.
