Chatta is a method of teaching which links subject knowledge and experiences with images, language and memory. The approach is very powerful for students with additional needs such as autism and dyslexia, for students learning new languages and for young children developing speech. During the Covid-19 pandemic Chatta has expanded to over 20 countries and secured growth funding investment.

about the innovation

What is Chatta?

Chatta is a simple and powerful pedagogical approach.

It links experiences and subject content with language and memory and leads to rapid progress for pupils of all ages.

Chatta features a digital app, which is used by educators, students, and families in a consistent way, following the clear and simple steps of the Chatta approach.

During the Covid 19 Pandemic Chatta has expanded to over 20 countries, providing daily creative learning activities and free software to thousands of families. Training is online making Chatta rapidly scalable, which is reflected in the large  increase in users since the start of the pandemic.

The approach has been used with children aged 1 and above, right through to adults with dementia and young people preparing for job and university interviews.

In one UK  city alone, in the last year the percentage of children achieving age-related expectations in speaking has increased from 49 to 83, leading to an expanded roll-out of Chatta for families.

“Talk is the halfway house between speaking and writing. Chatta is a learning superpower.’

Cheryl Bowers, Early Years Advisor, Hull, UK

Chatta is a unique way of learning through experiences, images and language. It is used to support teaching and learning and leads to strong outcomes in spoken communication, writing, memory. Chatta unlocks creativity like nothing else.
