Strengthening Language Support in the EYFS

For EYFS practitioners who are looking to support children who may need more targeted intervention for communication and language


Communication and language is at the heart of early years practice, ensuring that children have access to the wider world as they grow and develop. To support children who may need more targeted intervention for communication and language, we firstly need to consider the benefits of utilising the opportunities for targeting talk within the provision.

This session will explore how to create the optimum conditions for talk across your provision, maximising upon the spaces and resources you provide and considering how as adults we can tune into children’s interests in order to provide effective interventions within the provision.

Delegates will come away with ways to successfully improve their practice around the delivery of early intervention strategies and develop practical ways to target talk within the environment.


  • Understand how to create a climate for talk across your EYFS provision

  • Consider early intervention strategies to support the development of speech, language and communication

  • Explore practical ways to target children’s talk in the environment
