Thank you for considering supporting Twinkleboost! Each £250 funds 140 children with additional challenges to receive weekly Speech and Language support, as part of our pilot programme AND trains up 4 nursery staff as Specialists in supporting Speech and Language development.
We know that vocabulary at 5 is one of the best predictors of later life outcomes, so we've made it our mission to provide early and accessible Speech and Language support to all children from birth.
Each year Our Speech and Language Therapy Team provide training, coaching and support to more than 2500 children, parents and professionals.
We provide direct support to children in the form of weekly Communication classes, led by Speech and Language Therapy Assistants and empower those around the child- parents, carers and early years teams, with evidence based training and coaching to support language development.
Help us make a difference!
With your help we can grow our reach even further by expanding our nursery programme; developing pioneering new technology to support an additional 1000 children over the next 6 months and 5000 children over the next 5 years.
We will focus on those most in need; children with additional needs who require extra support with their language skills and children living in areas of deprivation who are statistically less likely to start school with the language skills they need to succeed.
Eventually we hope to make this programme available in all nurseries across the UK, giving every child access to early support to reach their potential.
Help us create this new pioneering technology:
We will provide:
* Weekly Communication classes, co-led by an online Speech Therapy Assistant and a specially trained nursery staff member.
* Virtual Access to a Speech and Language Therapy Team for advice and support
* Access to Specialist Training for all the team, and ongoing CPD to enhance practice and provide the best outcomes for children.
* A support programme for parents and a range of practical resources for staff
Please help us to make this a reality. We are grateful for every pound; every £10 supports one child to access early Speech and Language Support. Every £20 supports three children.
Thank you for your support!
