DYT has published it’s annual impact report, celebrating the success of our unique and powerful evidence-based approach to school development.

Highlights include:

  • Training nearly 2000 teachers in inclusive literacy strategies
  • 10,500 children benefitting from our work
  • Launching the SEND Governance Review Guide – downloaded over 2000 times
  • Meetings with senior parliamentarians and cabinet officials, including the Deputy Prime Minister
  • Positive changes in SEND education agenda from both the DfE and Ofsted

On the report’s release, Founder Sarah Driver commented that“in its aim to improve the outcomes of young people who struggle with literacy, DYT has continued to invest in our partner schools to better meet the needs of learners with literacy difficulties by improving teacher capability and therefore school capacity. Consequently, the 2017/18 academic year has seen us take big steps forward with a new strategy, an expanded team with a range of specialist expertise and revised approaches to our work”.

“Going into 2019 I am confident that we will continue to deliver impact in our 30 new partner schools and in our work with partners across the sector to realise our goals in policy, practice and research”.

Now DYT is looking ahead to an exciting 2019 where we will work with 30 schools on our Drive for Literacy programme, alongside publishing new research on specialist dyslexia teachers, and developing training on SEND governance.
