Talk & Move is a unique programme that supports children's speech, language, and emotional development through movement.

The programme targets the three prime areas of the EYFS Framework and Development Matters.

The Talk & Move Programme is as fun as it is beneficial, with 29 cards, 29 sounds, and 29 moves to explore!

The Talk & Move Programme was founded by Helen Guntrip, a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist for over 20 years.

Talk & Move is holistic, it combines Helen's extensive experience of supporting children's communication skills with her knowledge of children's yoga and mental health.

Helen has a wealth of experience in early intervention and has worked for many years supporting preschools, nurseries, and primary schools.

Helen has helped hundreds of families and educators to develop their children’s confidence and communication skills.

Teaching yoga has taught her that children need to move and have fun to enable them to listen and learn.

Each Talk & Move card has a picture of the move on the front and the sounds, words, syllables, and rhymes linked to the move on the back.

The Talk & Move cards support adults to help children to manage their emotions through co-regulation.

The cards are divided into 3 different categories - Active, Balancing, and Calming cards.

Active movements aim to energize children, balancing moves help their co-ordination and develop concentration, and calming moves help children to relax.

The Talk & Move Programme helps to develop children’s speaking and listening through movement.

By hearing and having fun with the sounds in words, syllables and rhyme children develop their phonological awareness.

This supports their pre-literacy skills and their reading and spelling.

The programme simultaneously enables children to experience a range of movement: crawling, jumping, hopping, balancing and resting.

Core stability, balance and co-ordination are essential for children to be able to dress themselves, sit comfortably, concentrate, draw and write.
