Screen for Dyslexia and Other Reading Disorders in 15 Minutes -- In Person or Remotely


Ideal for use within an RTI delivery system model, the FAR Screening Form and FAR Screening Form Remote are designed to identify children at risk for developmental dyslexia and measure the underlying processes of reading.

What's Available

Learn more about how the FAR helps school psychologists identify reading disorders, including dyslexia, and develop appropriate interventions in our infographic.

Our In-Person e-Stimulus Books and Kits are convenient, more hygienic alternatives to paper administration that allow you to administer the FAR face-to-face via tablet. Be sure to download our new white paper prior to administering.



Features and benefits

  • Derived from the FAR, a comprehensive assessment of reading and related processes.
  • Comprises three subtests: one from the Phonological Index (Phonemic Awareness), one from the Fluency Index (Rapid Automatic Naming), and one from the Comprehension Index (Semantic Concepts).
  • Yields a single composite score that indicates the risk for dyslexia.
  • Allows you to decide whether the risk of dyslexia or reading disability is high enough to warrant further assessment.
  • Available for in-person or remote administration.
