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.
