The program best suited for your child will depend on your child’s maturity level. Your child will receive the same instruction regardless of the program you choose, but it will be presented a bit differently to appeal to the maturity level of your child. Reading Horizons Discovery® has a fun feel, with the opportunity to earn coins that can be redeemed for game time and to decorate the clubhouse. While Reading Horizons Elevate® has games available for students to play, there is no clubhouse and no coins to earn, and the reading passages are more informational, high-interest passages.
