Target Group

Who is the programme for?

  • Pre-school children (3-6 year olds): The BCP is used as part of the curriculum and integrated into the daily activities of the classroom.
  • Primary school children (7-9 year olds/up to Grade 3): The BCP is used as an intervention programme either within the classroom or in a pullout format 2-3 times a week.
  • School children with special education needs: The BCP is used as an intensive intervention programme and forms part of the learner’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) on a daily basis.


The programme has been found to be particularly effective for learners who have:

  • gaps in their knowledge of basic concepts and poor vocabulary development
  • receptive and expressive language difficulties
  • information processing difficulties
  • working memory difficulties
  • attention and concentration difficulties
  • motor planning difficulties
  • low levels of intrinsic motivation
  • self-regulation difficulties
  • low self-confidence
  • school  learning difficulties (eg: reading, writing, mathematics)


Professionals who most often use the BCP:

  • Classroom teachers
  • Learning support teachers/remedial teachers
  • Cognitive therapists
  • Educational psychologists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Speech and language therapists
