An Introduction to the Feifer Assessment of Reading (FAR)

This workshop will examine reading from a brain-based educational perspective, and discuss current literacy trends in the United States.   The primary focus of the presentation will be to differentiate “dyslexia” from other reading disorders.  There will be a discussion matching each reading disorders with evidence-based interventions.   The use of a neuropsychological paradigm to discuss multiple facets of the reading process including phonological processing, working memory, executive functioning, and orthographical processing will be featured.   Lastly, the Feifer Assessment of Reading (FAR) battery, a diagnostic educational assessment designed to examine the underlying cognitive and linguistic processes that supports proficient reading skills, will be introduced.
