A time of transition - Identifying literacy difficulties in Year 7
The Driver Youth Trust is a national charity dedicated to improving the life chances of children and young people with a focus on those with literacy difficulties and who may have SEND, particularly children with dyslexia.
Our flagship programme, Drive for Literacy, is a whole school model for literacy, built around the Graduated Approach and starting from Quality First Teaching. Its aim is to build teacher capability and school capacity to identify and support children who struggle with reading, writing, speaking and listening.
We commission research and campaign for policy change so that all children, including those with literacy difficulties, get the right support to learn to read and write, so that they can access the curriculum and experience success.
