Sue Robb of 4Children talks to Julie Laughton and Alison Britton from the Department for Education about the role of childminders in delivering the 30 hours free entitlement.
I CAN, the children’s communication charity, supports children with speech, language and communication needs through fun, evidenced interventions.
Its fantastic Boost series has already reached thousands of children around the UK, specifically targeting the 10 per cent who suffer with delayed speech and language.
I CAN does not believe any child should be left behind because of trouble communicating.
Its Intervention Packs have been created by speech and language therapists and include all the materials, books, manuals and resources needed to run the 8-10-week programmes repeatedly in any setting.
Teachers and practitioners have access to the online Tracker, which screens children and monitors their progress from start to finish, generating charts and tables to show evidence of progress.
I CAN has a skilled network of licensed tutors based all over the country.
These tutors go into schools and nurseries, giving practitioners the training they need to deliver its target driven programmes.
If you’d like to learn more about how one of I CAN’s programmes can support the children in your school or nursery, we’d like to hear from you.
