What is the Nuffield Early Language Intervention?

The Nuffield Early Language Intervention is a 20-week programme proven to help young children overcome language difficulties. It is designed for children aged 4-5 years and combines small group work with one-to-one sessions delivered by trained teaching assistants, targeting vocabulary, narrative skills, active listening and phonological awareness. Developed by a team led by Maggie Snowling and Charles Hulme, the intervention has been evaluated in robust trials funded by the Education Endowment Foundation and the Nuffield Foundation. These have found it to be effective for improving children’s oral language skills as well as promoting longer-term progress in reading comprehension.

Each school has to purchase a resource pack from OUP at a cost of £375 + VAT.

Dates: 22nd and 23rd October 2020 9.00-3.30pm and a half day from 9.00 – 12.15pm on Friday 3rd  December 2020
