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
