Description

The FAR is a comprehensive assessment of reading and related processes. It is unique in that it helps you determine the examinee’s specific subtype of dyslexia to inform decisions about appropriate interventions.

Features and benefits:
1.  It addresses four specific subtypes of dyslexia: dysphonic dyslexia, surface dyslexia, mixed dyslexia, and reading comprehension deficits.
2. It comprises 15 individual subtests measuring various aspects of vocabulary, phonological awareness, decoding skills, rapid automatic naming, orthographical processing, morphological processing, word memory, reading fluency (word and story; silent and oral), and comprehension skills.
3. It enables you to conduct an item-level skills and error analysis of the examinee’s scores on specific subtests and to take a more in-depth look at his or her reading-related behaviors.
4. It can be used for an array of purposes, including general screening of dyslexia, progress monitoring of discrete skills for school systems operating in an RTI paradigm, diagnosis of a learning disability as part of a comprehensive psychological evaluation, and design of a deficit- or skill-specific intervention.
5. A separate screening form is designed to identify children at risk for developmental dyslexia and measure the underlying processes of reading.
