Thank you for your interest in helping with our exciting language screener project.
Our language screener for Reception classes is designed to be fun and easy to administer. It looks at the understanding of language needed in the Reception classroom. The children work with an adult, listen to some words and then point at a cartoon picture that goes with the words. The whole idea is to target help just where it’s needed.
We are improving the screener to make it quicker without losing accuracy and we need some volunteer schools that do not currently use Infant Language Link to help with this process.
Each school taking part will screen about 3 pupils per Reception class, each month (except August) for one calendar year, 2020. We need the schools taking part to be able to screen at least 30 pupils across the year. At this stage in the process the pupils taking part need to have been speaking English at home and have been exposed to English at home since birth.
As a thank you for your help, in December 2020 we will send you a collection of all our printed SLCN resources, this includes all of the following items which individually retail at over £300.
