Our Method Changes Lives

When reading instruction isn’t systematic, it isn’t effective. The Reading Horizons® method is a systematic, simple, and scientific approach to teach reading.
Our Orton-Gillingham-based, multisensory approach to direct, explicit, systematic, and cumulative phonics instruction features five phonetic skills to aid readers in learning to decode and encode.

Built for Simplicity

Reading Horizons is the expert in foundational literacy—phonemic awareness, phonics, spelling, high-frequency words, and fluency. Our method includes:

Intentional Sequence. We progress from the simplest concepts to the more complex ones.

Unique Marking System. A visual cue to help students identify English language patterns.

Five Phonetic + Two Decoding Skills. These skills give all learners easy-to-learn rules for spelling and pronouncing words.

Daily Design. Our “I Do, We Do, You Do” instruction gives educators a repeatable framework for delivering lessons.

Everything You Need, Nothing You Don’t

Basal literacy programs sometimes fail when teachers get overwhelmed with unnecessary materials and instructional decisions. We consciously decided to include only what teachers need—and explicit guidance for how and when to use the materials.

Removing the Guesswork

Every lesson follows the same effective, systematic, and cumulative instructional design, empowering students to review, practice, and transfer their new skills—at their own pace.

Confidence for Educators. Confidence for Students.

When students fail to succeed, educator confidence dwindles. Reading Horizons isn’t just explicit, systematic instruction for students. It’s explicit, systematic instruction for educators, as well.
