In the 1970’s a seasoned educator, Charlotte Lockhart (also known as the “BiPhonic Woman”), published the original Discover Intensive Phonics for Yourself curriculum due to the success she had working with struggling readers in her school. By combining research-based strategies with a simple framework, Lockhart was able to quickly teach struggling students effective skills for decoding the English language.

In 1984, Reading Horizons was contracted to create corresponding software to Lockhart’s effective methodology. After Lockhart’s passing, Reading Horizons purchased the full copyright to the curriculum in 2001.

By embedding Lockhart’s effective approach into all of its products, Reading Horizons has been able to empower over 50,000 educators with teaching strategies that prevent and remediate the reading difficulties of beginning readers, struggling readers, and ELL students.

Reading Horizons seeks to provide literacy skills to all. We recognize that the students and educators we reach are diverse, and we embrace and value their diversity. To this end, Reading Horizons curriculum and materials are reviewed on an ongoing basis by our Cultural Inclusivity Review Committee.
