The MultiLit Research Unit (MRU) was established within Macquarie University Special Education Centre in 2006 to co-ordinate continuing research into effective instruction for low-progress readers.
Other members of MRU include:
|Dr Alison Madelaine|
|Dr Meree Reynolds|
Current activities of the MRU includes research trials evaluating the PreLit program and Spell-It, development and research trials of a group program for older low-progress readers, and research on the evaluation of assessment tools.
Research also continues on the efficacy of MultiLit programs with socially disadvantaged and Indigenous Australian students.
