MULTILIT is predicated upon contemporary, evidence‐based best practice and research‐based models for effective instruction of reading and related skills for low‐progress readers. The conceptual foundations and operating principles of MULTILIT are described in Wheldall and Beaman (2000), while three government funded reports from Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom have reviewed the effectiveness of different approaches to the teaching of reading. This paper draws on these resources to explain ‘why we do what we do’ in MULTILIT instructional programs, showing how MULTILIT relates to, and is consistent with, international research and best practice in this area.
