It’s Time to Talk is a group intervention for children in the early years who are struggling with early interaction, single word vocabulary, attention and listening. It is designed to be run by early years professionals and covers these skills through a topic based approach.

Who is the intervention suitable for?

  • listening & paying attention

  • sitting for any length of time

  • waiting & taking turns

  • following an adult’s lead

  • understanding words

  • saying words

Developed by Speech and Language Therapists from Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire, the Early Communication Screen links to the EYFS framework, ‘Development Matters’ and Stoke Speaks Out tools.

 

It was piloted in 2015 across four schools and three private day nurseries and the results validated by assessing a sample of the children using a detailed standardised language assessment.

 

Since then it has been used by over 500 Early Years settings and schools across Staffordshire, Stoke-on-Trent and Shropshire.
