Feifer Assessment of Reading (FAR)
Steven G. Feifer

Ages: 4 - 21 years
Testing Time: 35 to 75 minutes
Administration: Individual
The FAR is a comprehensive assessment of reading related processes. It examines the underlying cognitive and linguistic processes that support proficient reading skills. It is unique in that it helps you determine the examinee's specific sub-types of dyslexia to inform decisions about appropriate interventions.
    Features and Benefits: 

  •     Takes a neurodevelopmental approach to reading, which suggests that multiple neural pathways underscore various aspects of the reading process such as phonemic awareness, fluency, decoding, and comprehension.
  •     Based on the premise that treatments for reading disorders vary by dyslexic sub-type, with four specific sub-types addressed: dysphonetic dyslexia, surface dyslexia, mixed dyslexia, and reading comprehension deficits.
  •    Comprises 15 individual sub-tests measuring various aspects of vocabulary, phonological awareness, decoding skills, rapid automatic naming,   processing, morphological processing, word memory, reading fluency (word and story; silent and oral), and comprehension skills. 
  •    A separate Screening Form permits you to screen for dyslexia and identify the needs of at-risk readers.
  •    Enables you to conduct an item-level skills and error analysis of the examinee's scores on specific sub-tests and to take a more in-depth look at his or her reading-related behaviors.
  •    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.
