Early Reading Screening Program

Laughlin Children’s Center offers early reading screenings for 5-7 year old children whose parents want to know if their child might experience difficulty in learning to read.

The Predictive Reading Assessment (PAR) is administered to assess:

  • Letter-Word Calling
  • Picture Naming Vocabulary
  • Phonemic Awareness
  • Rapid Naming Fluency abilities.

After the one-on-one screening is administered, you will meet with a specialist who will provide you with the results on your child’s performance and recommended next steps. Each screening appointment will take approximately 30-45 minutes.

Screenings are available at the Center by appointment. For more information about scheduling a screening, please complete the contact form below. To inquire about having the Center come to your preschool, please contact Rachael Troglio, our academic department director, at [email protected]
