FAR BY STEVEN G. FEIFER, DED; PROFESSIONAL MANUAL BY STEVEN G. FEIFER, DED, AND REBECCA GERHARDSTEIN NADER, PHD

The FAR, a comprehensive assessment of reading and related processes, helps determine an individual’s specific subtype of reading impairment and inform intervention planning. It 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.

The FAR comprises16 subtests that measure 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. Examinees take 8 to 14, subtests depending on what grade they are in. A screening form allows you to quickly test for dyslexia and identify the needs of at-risk readers.
