Do you have children starting school with limited vocabulary?
Chatty Words can help:
- those who are learning English as an Additional language,
- those who lack language support at home
- children with more complex needs for example Autism, Developmental Language Disorder, Selective Mutism.
Would you like to know how much core vocabulary a child has?
Chatty Words allows you to find out if a child has any “word gaps” and how big these gaps are. It then provides all the tools you need to close these word gaps before this has impacted significantly on talking, forming sentences and being word-ready for literacy
Would you like tools that let your staff take control and help children without having to wait for external SLCN expertise?
Chatty Words gives you a tool you can use immediately with new starters in Nursery, Reception or throughout the school for children with EAL. Chatty Words can be used on tablets, laptops, desktops or smart screens in classrooms. It can be used 1:1 with small groups or whole classes. Settings will be provided with a user login for teaching staff and a user login for parents so that everyone can work as part of the team in boosting vocabulary.
Chatty Words covers all the expected vocabulary categories such as animals, clothes, body parts, home, out and about, food, toys, transport and wild animals. Chatty Words can be used to develop receptive and spoken vocabulary depending upon the current level of the child. Chatty Words complements Wellcomm and other language interventions in building single word vocabulary – the building blocks of sentence formation.
Chatty Words can be used to screen children quickly and efficiently and results can be retained and compared to show measurable progress. The software is based around research and evidence and follows the sound principles of vocabulary learning as recommended by Speech and Language Therapists when working with children with vocabulary and EAL delays.
This is a yearly subscription service with prices starting from £450 + VAT depending upon the size of the Setting.
