When our students don’t have that basic reading background of learning skills and being able to decode words, this is where we have to go back to the basics of teaching and reading.
Our students have been identified as having either a learning disability or some type of emotional problem, (and) they also have communication development problems, which means they have language-based deficits. And we found that (Reading Horizons) really does help for those kinds of reading deficits. … It just plugs that gap.
We are actually starting to see our teachers and parents and people here in our school wanting to know more about how we can use Reading Horizons to help our students who are struggling with some of those basic reading problems. It’s a great support at this time – filling the gap and helping students.
It works better for the high school student. They really don’t feel like they’re in an elementary classroom. They can use the software, and it targets what they need.
