Up to 25% of children struggle with learning to read. It is not their fault. To remedy this, intensive and systematic reading instruction is required. At Gladesville Primary we are proactive in planning for early reading intervention and support. These evidence-based programs improve accuracy, fluency and comprehension and spelling.
MultiLit produces a range of programs to assist children to learn to read – from initial reading instruction to remedial program for struggling readers. These programs are available only for use within schools, and require training prior to delivery.
InitiaLit is an evidence-based whole-class literacy program providing all children with the essential core knowledge and strong foundations to become successful readers and writers. InitiaLit is a three-year program, covering the first three years of school (Foundation to Year 2).
MiniLit is an evidence-based, effective early literacy program. MiniLit targets the bottom 25% of students and is specifically aimed at struggling Year 1 readers, but may also be appropriate for ‘at risk’ Kindergarten, and some Year 2 students. MiniLit is designed to be delivered to small groups of up to four students, but can also be used on a one-to-one basis. Well-trained teachers, or paraprofessionals with teacher support can deliver the program.
MacqLit is an explicit and systematic reading intervention program for small groups of older readers. It provides teachers with a comprehensive sequence of lessons that includes all the key components necessary for effective reading instruction: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
