Reading Horizons Offers its First Time Free Trial of Reading Program

Reading Horizons, a company engaged in producing an intensive reading program for struggling readers, is now offering a free 30-day trial of its new Reading Horizons v5 software. The free trial was launched April 2010 and can be requested at:

For over 25 years, Reading Horizons has been helping people learn to read with its advanced computer software. This is the first time in Reading Horizons history that the company has offered a free trial. The offer coincides with Reading Horizons latest product release and website redesign. Reading Horizons v5 software was specifically developed to help young adolescents and adults learners who read below grade level. The software uses multi-sensory instruction to teach students of all learning styles the fundamentals of reading.

In the initial testing of the new v5 software Dr. Neil J. Anderson, Coordinator of the English Language Center at Brigham Young University, commented: “This is fantastic! This puts Reading Horizons miles ahead of anything else that is out there on the market.”

In response to why Reading Horizons decided to offer a 30 day free-trial of the reading program, Company President, Tyson Smith said: “Reading Horizons has decided to create a free trial to help end-users see the value of the program. We know the program is effective and is the solution to the reading problems of many struggling readers, but we want to assure teachers and administrators that this is the case. I am confident the free trial will confirm the value of our reading program to those who participate.”

To supplement the free trial customers may also access Reading Horizons Online Workshop to receive training on Reading Horizons methodology. The Online Workshop can be found at:

Founded in 1984, Reading Horizons has spent the last two decades developing and perfecting computer software based on the effective Discover Intensive Phonics for Yourself (DIP) method first published in 1976. Reading Horizons originally produced only an elementary version of the software but soon became very aware of the need for a sequential, basic reading program for secondary and adult students. Reading Horizons applied for and was awarded a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grant from the federal Department of Education to develop the Discover Intensive Phonics software for non-reading adults. The result was Reading Horizons.
