Feifer Assessment Bundle Benefits
A few benefits of using all three Feifer assessment products
This bundle includes the Feifer Assessment of Reading (FAR) comprehensive kit, the Feifer Assessment of Math (FAM) comprehensive kit, and the Feifer Assessment of Writing (FAW) comprehensive kit. The Feifer Assessments of Reading, Mathematics, and Writing offer a unique, cognitive processing approach to identification of dyslexia and specific learning disabilities. The FAR, FAM, and FAW use a neurodevelopmental approach to examine underlying cognitive processes that explain why students have learning difficulties, in addition to assessing students’ academic skills. For psychologists and educators who conduct disability testing, this bundle provides a comprehensive suite of reading, writing, and arithmetic assessment tools. The Feifer assessments tell you WHY a student struggles with reading, writing, or math.
Feifer Assessment of Reading Benefits (FAR)
The FAR doesn’t just indicate IF a student may have a reading disorder—it goes even deeper to identify likely dyslexic subtypes, so you can create effective interventions, develop appropriate reading strategies, and monitor response to intervention. The FAR was developed with colorful, age-appropriate stimuli to engage even the most reluctant readers. It can be used with children as young as age 5 years to get struggling readers help sooner. The FAR Interpretive Report on PARiConnect gives clinicians enhanced options, including detailed interpretations and recommendations that address the likely specific dyslexia type. The 15 subtests measure various aspects of phonological development, orthographical processing, decoding skills, morphological awareness, reading fluency, and comprehension skills.
Feifer Assessment of Math Benefits (FAM)
The FAM is the only math assessment tool that examines the cause of students’ math difficulties using a brain-based approach. It identifies specific math strengths and weaknesses to help you develop targeted interventions that work. The FAM isolates, measures, and quantifies various subtypes of dyscalculia. It also identifies students’ math strengths and weaknesses. The FAM includes 19 subtests that make up three indexes (Verbal, Procedural, and Semantic). The FAM Screening Form includes three subtests—one from each index—and is designed to identify children at risk for dyscalculia or math learning disability within an RTI delivery system model.
Feifer Assessment of Writing Benefits (FAW)
The FAW examines the underlying processes that support proficient written language skills. In addition to identifying the possibility of dysgraphia, the FAW is able to determine the subtype of dysgraphia. The FAW is designed to measure three subtypes of written language disorders (or dysgraphias). Results help specify, from a neuropsychological perspective, exactly why a student struggles with written language so you can develop appropriate, customized interventions. The FAW examines the cognitive, motoric, and linguistic processes that occur in the process of building proficient written language skills from a brain– behavior perspective. It also provides qualitative information about a student’s writing skills, including a skills analysis available within most subtests that allows you to dig deeper into a student’s abilities. It is normed for students from prekindergarten through college. Screening forms, ideal for progress monitoring, are also available.
