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.
We focus our practical and free information and resources on specific areas where we believe we can make a sizeable and sustainable difference, with a view to creating systemic change in how young people who face literacy difficulties are supported in education.
Our flagship programme, Drive for Literacy (DfL), is a collaboration between policy and practice and is informed by the evidence of our research. It 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 Learners who struggle with reading, writing, speaking and listening.
