The MULTILIT Reading Tutor Program (Revised) caters for students who have not acquired the basic skills needed to become functional readers. The program is designed to be used with individual students, on a one-to-one basis, by mainstream teachers, support teachers, parents, volunteer tutors, speech pathologists, educational psychologists and private tutors.

Resources in the MULTILIT Toolbox are made available to parents and teachers to assist in the development of reading skills of low-progress readers. The resources listed are provided free of charge by MULTILIT.
