Research & Policy
Research drives our programme development, resources and campaigns, ensuring that all of our work is evidence-based.
Our programmes and campaigns are built around the findings from our research papers.
Over the last seven years, we have taken a deep-dive into the inclusion of SEND practice in Initial Teacher Training (The Fish in the Tree, 2013), the result of educational reforms around SEND (Joining the Dots, 2015), and assumptions around SEND and ‘being disadvantaged’ (Through the Looking Glass, 2017).
Our new report, Hide and Seek, reflects on the recommendations of the Rose Review more than 10 years on, and questions where all the specialist dyslexia teachers promised by the government in 2010 are now.
The Fish in the Tree: Why we are failing children with dyslexia
Most of us take being able to read and write for granted, and yet one in ten people in the UK have dyslexia. How and why does the education system fail learners who struggle with literacy, and how can schools and policymakers remedy this?
