"It is invigorating to see a well-structured programme highlighting the importance of transferring skills taught in isolation, back into mainstream learning and the home. A Plan B for a 'second chance to learn' the skills is offered, an additional 'post session liaison' to reinforce the language in the main setting environment, as well as documents supporting settings in involving parents. IF this structure is followed systemcatically, it is easy to see how the children make progress!"

"It's easy to follow. Evaluation is quick and easy to complete. The children's growth in confidence from beginning to end is really noticeable."
