Reading Horizons sells a scientifically-based intensive phonics reading system used successfully in schools for over 30 years. We are now making this program available for home use. We have non-consumable teaching materials and companion software for ages 4-10 and 10-adult that promise reading gains of 2-5 grade levels in about 40 hours of work.

Many parents and teachers don’t know how to teach reading/phonics in a systematic way to help those who don't easily read automatically. Each child is different and many don’t just “pick up” reading through exposure to the alphabet and literature. They require the right type of instruction delivered in a very explicit way. I’d like to invite you to evaluate a vital tool for home school families needing to improve reading instruction. We provide a solid base in phonics and decoding strategies for students that helps them to read any length word accurately and fluently. We offer a FREE online version of our training for homeschooler parents. Please visit this link to have a look at the Online Workshop and a myriad of other free resources we have developed for your use: http://www.readinghorizonsathome.com/resources.aspx
