Description

It is with great pleasure that we write to invite you to the launch of the latest Driver Youth Trust research report, 'Through the Looking Glass', on the 23rd March 2017 at the RSA.




Our newest report challenges the assumption that universal literacy strategies are applicable and inclusive for all learners.

We place enormous value on literacy attainment as a society and particularly in our education system.

Evidence from research reports, strategies and campaigns from literacy organisations, the government and its agencies talk about teaching four skill areas (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to all children – universal provision for every child across the country.

Yet, on closer examination when we talk about every child we tend to mean those that can meet these expectations. What we tend to forget is that some children – including many with Special Educational Needs and Disability, such as dyslexia – may not ever achieve this, despite being perfectly capable of learning.

The needs of, indeed the very existence of, these children can appear to sit beyond the realm of mainstream educational thinking, talking and planning. They are addressed in separate strategies and approaches. On many occasions, it appears that universal is not applicable to all, or inclusive.

“There is no greater disadvantage than being ignored.”




Further event details:

The evening will commence with a drinks and canapes reception from 6.30pm, followed by speeches from main contributors with ample time being given for Q&A, discussion and networking during the formal proceedings.

Please advise DYT of any special mobility or dietary requirements you may have by emailing the organisation at info@driveryouthtrust.com.

We hope you are able to accept this invitation and look forward to hearing from you.
