About this course
'BLAST' is a 6-week intervention program for children of three years and over. It is used widely across South Tyneside in schools and non-maintained settings. Practitioners report measurable impact, particularly on children's listening, attention and PSED.
The BLAST resource pack (purchasable separately from the company after training) contains all that is needed to deliver the programme. The resources can be used flexibly with a mixed-ability group of 6 children. BLAST 1 links to phase 1 phonics teaching. BLAST 2 links to phases 2-3.
