Last May I attended an IEP meeting for a student who had been attending an instructional special education class for three years. There had been very little increase in his reading abilities. Tests showed an increase of six months. The mother was very upset over the lack of progress and wanted a change. This sixth grader transferred to my class for the start of the new school year. In the semester that I have had him he has used Reading Horizons. His reading has already improved six months. A lot of different strategies have been used but Reading Horizons is a primary staple in his instruction. His spelling and writing all correspond to the skills he is learning and practicing through Reading Horizons.
The mother and the boy are extremely pleased with the progress made. I am ecstatic!
