Reading Horizons Orton-Gillingham Software + Teacher Resources

Searching for resources to support readers? The folks at Reading Horizons have created software and teacher resources to support your reading instruction. Their goal is to make learning how to read simple and enjoyable for beginning and struggling readers of all ages through their Orton-Gillingham based method.

Reading Horizons Orton-Gillingham Software + Teacher Resources

Reading Horizons has a series of products all based on the Orton-Gillingham method. These tools provide explicit, systematic, multi-sensory instruction in decoding, spelling, and pronunciation strategies. Reading Horizons Discovery® and Reading Horizons Elevate® are two reading software options with resources for teachers. If you are working with elementary school-aged students or students learning to read at any age, you’ll want to check out what Reading Horizons has to offer.

Reading Horizons Discovery® is user-friendly with age-appropriate software and direct instruction material for K-3 students. In the video below you can see Discovery in action and an overview of what it looks like in the classroom.

In addition to Reading Horizons Discovery®, the Reading Horizons Elevate® software and direct instruction teacher resources are designed for older students. The team at Reading Horizons wanted to make sure the material was age-appropriate for intervention beginning in grade 4 as well as for English Language Learners, students with special needs, and adult learners. A new version of Reading Horizons Elevate® will be released this fall and was designed to have an increased emphasis on student engagement and cross-platform performance.

Storytelling Suite in the Hilton Palacio Del Rio to connect with educators interested in hearing more about their products.
