Welcome to Talk Boost Glos

An independent training practice set up to deliver ICAN’s Talk Boost training to Gloucestershire’s primary schools.

Training and support provided by local Licensed Tutor - Helen Rose.


What is Talk Boost?

The Talk Boost programmes are targeted interventions for children with delayed language development, which boost their language and communication skills to help them catch up with their peers. The small group sessions are held three times a week and run by trained teaching assistants.  There are additional whole class and home-based activities.


ICAN offer the following 3 programmes:

  • EarlyTalk Boost for 3 and 4 year olds in pre-school
  • Talk BoostKS1 for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2
  • Talk BoostKS2 for children in Years 4 and 5.


Why choose Talk Boost?

  • Evidence-based. Each of the programmes has been piloted to show children make significant progress in their language skills


  • Includes online or paper- based Tracker Tool. This is a useful language assessment carried out by staff in the setting with before and after measures to show progress


  • Identifies meaningful outcomes and effective provisions for My Plans for children with delayed language
