The Predictive Reading Assessment (PAR)
This screening will be administered to assess your child’s Letter-Word Calling, Picture Naming Vocabulary, Phonemic Awareness, and Rapid Naming Fluency abilities. After the one-on-one test is administered, you will meet with a specialist and receive results on your child’s performance and recommended next steps. Each screening appointment will take approximately one half hour.
Reservations are required and can be scheduled between 10:00-2:30 pm by calling the Center 412-741-4087.
