MultiLit partnered with the NSW Department of Education and Evidence for Learning to undertake an evaluation of our literacy intervention program for struggling Year 1 readers, MiniLit, in 2017.
The independent evaluation was conducted by researchers from the Melbourne Graduate School of Eduction at the University of Melbourne, and the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. The study found MiniLit had positive effects on foundational reading skills.
