BLAST is a programme that we use in our Nursery to support the development of speech, language and communication for identified children. Listening and speaking skills are developed simultaneously during each session.
BLAST stands for Boosting Language Auditory Skills and Talking.
BLAST works on the underpinning skills for language, communication and literacy – turn taking, discrimination, listening, attention and social communication as well as developing basic language skills both receptively and expressively.
The key message of the BLAST programme is ‘EVERY CHILD SUCCEEDS WITH EVERY ACTIVITY’. BLAST is designed to be fully inclusive and accessible to all children within our setting.
The programme is positive and fun and our children really enjoy being part of a small group. They show a real sense of pride in their achievements. Our children receive 30 consecutive sessions in a small group of between 4 and 8 children with a lead practitioner.
