MultiLit Literacy Centre Programs
Enrolment in a MultiLit Literacy Centre Program is open to students whose MultiLit Literacy Assessment results indicate that they would benefit from a program.
MultiLit Literacy Centre Programs operate on a 10-week term basis and can be commenced at any time. Students initially enrol for one term and their progress is continuously monitored. Fees for all programs include a printed review assessment at the end of each term. Tutoring sessions are conducted at the MultiLit Literacy Centres (Macquarie Park or Bella Vista) or online.
Some students may make sufficient progress to require only one term of MultiLit instruction. Other students may need to enrol for two or more terms, possibly transferring to less intensive programs as they progress. Recommendations about further enrolment are made towards the end of each term based on the student’s progress.
Please note: An initial Literacy Assessment is a pre-requisite to enrolling in any of our MultiLit Literacy Centre programs. Upfront payment for assessment is required at the time of booking, and there is a $50 non-refundable administration fee upon cancellation.
MultiLit Individual Program
This program delivers high-level one-to-one instruction by a trained MultiLit tutor over two, three or four 50-minute sessions per week. Regular monitoring is conducted and the program adjusted to maximise the student’s progress.
All individual programs are conducted for 10 weeks. New enrolments are accepted throughout the school terms. If your child requires additional assistance in spelling, comprehension or writing, this can be delivered through an Individual Program.
MultiLit Monitoring Program
In this program, the parent or caregiver is trained to deliver the MultiLit program at home. On at least four days per week for 30 minutes per day, the parent carries out the instruction at home with the student. Once a week, the parent and the student attend a half-hour session where their progress is reviewed, program adjustments are made and the parent can seek any clarification needed. Monitoring sessions are available during or after school hours Monday through Saturday at the MultiLit Literacy Centre. Before the student commences this program, the parent must attend a MultiLit training session (see Parent Training for Monitoring Program below).
Please note: Only parents or caregivers may deliver the program.
**In addition to the program cost, a refundable deposit of $350 for resources loaned must be paid prior to the commencement of the Monitoring Program. This deposit will be refunded once all the borrowed resources have been returned in reusable condition at the end of enrolment.
MultiLit School Holiday Programs
Not everyone is able to bring their child to the Literacy Centre weekly due to distance or time constraints, so parents may choose to send their child to attend a MultiLit school holiday program.
Please note that for all new students a placement test is required at a cost of $50. Should you wish to enrol your child in a full term program at completion of a holiday program, a comprehensive literacy assessment is required.
Spelling, Writing and Comprehension
If your child requires additional assistance in spelling, writing or comprehension, this can be delivered through the Individual Program.
Parent Training for Monitoring Program
Before the student commences the Monitoring Program, a training session must be attended by one or both parents or caregivers to learn how to deliver the program at home. Materials to deliver the program are provided on loan for the term.
The half-day (4 hour) training session is held at our Literacy Centres in Macquarie Park and Bella Vista.
