Teacher Talking Profile


Guest
 Share

Recommended Posts

:o Help urgently required! I have completed parts of the teacher talking profile in the recent past but have been asked to obtain the blank form (in order to complete from September onwards) at my new school . I am unsure as to were these can be obtained from and how much they cost (I preume there' s a cost because they come with a handbook). The handbook is called 'Teaching Procedures Hanbook' and a search on the web has drawn a blank (obviously not typing in the magic words).

Have also tried the speech and language website for my area which just states 'please complete teacher talking profile' so not much help there.

 

Please, please help if any one has any info on how I/ school can obtain these forms.

Hi Lisa. I've got a copy of the Teaching Talking pack (by Ann Locke and Maggie Beech) kindly supplied by my EYDCP. It is published by

 

nferNelson Publishing Company Ltd,

The Chiswick Centre,

414 Chiswick High Road,

London

W4 5TF

 

I've had a look on Amazon.co.uk but they don't seem to stock it. You'll probably have to order it directly from the publishers. We were told they cost about £70-80. Hope this helps!

HI Lisa,

I can see you've been a member for a while so If I haven't welcomed you in elsewhere, welcome. Perhaps you will become addicted like the rest of us soon! :o

Unfortunately I have no idea what you are referring to, so hope Kaybee is on the right track for you. Perhaps you can also let us know more?

Susan, Teaching Talking is a screen that teachers use to identify and speech or language disorders within their class. In my authority it's virtually compulsory to do it and they give training to all nursery and preschool teachers. Basically there is an initial form where you write down every child's name and tick boxes which correspond with their level of speech, interaction and comprehension. This will eliminate most of the class as having reasonable speech. You are then left with the children who may have problems. You then fill in a second form which should help you identify some of those problems and then you use the accompanying books to plan activities for the children. This system doesn't only pick up speech problems, but also other special needs. Hope this has helped!

Thanks Kaybee, that certainly does. I've never heard of it though! Obviously you use it in Nursery, what age child is it aimed at? I've never seen mention of it on the transfer records either, perhaps it is not applicable to our largely EAL population?

Thanks Kaybee for the fast advice!! I can now put this to the back of my mind and think of my holiday next week.

 

I can now pass on this info to the teacher requesting the info.

 

:D

Hi Susan, the screen is intended to be used mainly with nursery aged children. We have also been encouraged to use it with our younger children(two and a half years). The intention is to identify any problems before children start full time eduction.
