Welsh Government – Review of Practice – Flying Start (2014)

Arad was commissioned to undertake two research projects relating to the Early Language Development strand of the Flying Start programme. The first project was a Review of Practice in the Implementation of the Early Language Development (ELD) Support Element within Flying Start. This will include fieldwork with Flying Start partnerships to explore examples of good practice and opportunities to improve the delivery of the ELD entitlement. The second is a Review of Research Evidence on the Effectiveness of Different Approaches to Promoting Early Speech and Language Development. This included a Rapid Evidence Assessment (REA) of successful language-development interventions tailored for young children. The reports can be accessed here and here
