The MULTILit Reading Tutor Program caters for students who have not yet acquired the basic skills needed to become functional readers. Children who have experienced difficulty to learn to read in the first few years of schooling need intensive, systematic reading instruction if they are not to fall further behind.
Research shows that the most effective programs of reading instruction for low-progress readers involve intensive, systematic and explicit instruction in three main areas:
1. ‘Phonics’ (or word attack skills);
2. Sight words recognition; and
3. Supported book reading
Students are given individual lessons several times a week to support their reading/ literacy needs.
We would like to Acknowledge the Kuringa & Dharug people of our nation who are the traditional custodians of this land. We would also like to pay respect to Elders both past and present and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people present.
