Qualification level:
S
S
A degree, certificate, or license to practice in a health care profession or occupation, including (but not limited to) the following: medicine, neurology, nursing, occupational therapy and other allied health care professions, physician's assistants, psychiatry, social work; plus appropriate training and experience in the ethical administration, scoring, and interpretation of clinical behavioral assessment instruments. Certain health care providers may be eligible to purchase selected "B" and "C" level instruments within their area of expertise. Specifically, relevant supervised clinical experience using tests (i.e., internship, residency, etc.) in combination with formal coursework ( i.e., Tests and Measurement, Individual Assessment, or equivalent) qualifies a health care provider to purchase certain restricted products. Any PAR Customer already qualified to purchase a "B" or "C" level product, is also qualified to purchase an "S" level product. If you are not already qualified to purchase a "B"or "C" level product from PAR, please download and complete the special Qualification Form for Medical and Allied Health Professionals.

Derived from the FAM, a comprehensive assessment of mathematics designed to examine the underlying neurodevelopmental process that support the acquisition of proficient math skills, the FAM Screening Form allows you to quickly screen for dyscalculia and math learning disabilities and to identify the needs of at-risk students. 

Features and benefits

  • Designed to identify children at risk for dyscalculia or a math learning disability (MLD) within an RTI delivery system model.
  • Measures the underlying cognitive and quantitative processes that underscore the development of mathematical achievement in a manner that best informs decisions about appropriate interventions.
  • Comprises three subtests—one from each index—selected as the best representation of each domain based on clinical research and statistical analysis.
  • Yields a single index score that indicates risk for dyscalculia or an MLD.
  • Intended to assist users in deciding whether the risk of dyscalculia or an MLD is high enough to warrant further assessment.
  • Takes just 30 minutes to administer and score; scoring is also available 24/7 via PARiConnect, our online assessment platform.
