Nurturing Talk

NurturingTalk@Primary was developed and written by Clare Reed of Education Works Ltd in conjunction with Helen Stollery and Claire Eccleshall from The Nurture Group Network. It is a targeted and flexible intervention programme to develop children's language and thought processes, helping them to talk effectively with other children and adults. It is designed to be used with children with social, emotional, behavioural and mental health difficulties, initially on a one-to-one basis but moving on to partner work and then being able to operate successfully in small groups. Each child will have a different time scale working with the programme depending on their personal needs and developmental stage.

This course and resource can support how children communicate, enabling them to become more confident and independent speakers, listeners and learners. However, the skills and strategies that are taught to these target children can also be used at whole class level to develop SLC skills for all children.

Courses are run by our Consultancy Team and can be booked now at the day consultancy rate of £500 (+VAT), which enables up to 30 people to attend. There is an additional £75 charge (not included in the day consultancy rate) for the training folder, per person. Training sessions are held at your school.
