What is TalkTogether?
Children with a small vocabulary are at a disadvantage for all aspects of learning. Unless there is targeted support, children who start slow will continue to fall behind their language-rich peers. A powerful way to ensure all children are ready for learning, particularly in school, is to offer high quality oral language education early in a child’s life.
TalkTogether is using research to inform the development of a range of resources including:
- teacher training modules and toolkits,
- community and parent seminars,
- open access research materials,
- sample interventions and,
- tools for policymakers.
