The Nuffield Early Language Intervention, developed by researchers at the University of Oxford's Department of Experimental Psychology and Department of Education, is a programme for children in their first year of primary school who show weakness in their oral language skills, and are therefore at risk of developing difficulties with reading. Oxford University Press was recently announced as the programme's publishing partner, helping to bring the intervention to children across the UK.
In this video, staff members from Carmountside Primary Academy in Stoke on Trent and community initiatve Stoke Speaks Out discuss the positive impact that the programme has had on children who need extra support in developing their language skills.
Over the weeks, you see them grow... and to me, personally, that's amazing."
