Early Reading Screening Program
Funded by the Peirce Family Foundation, Laughlin Children’s Center offers free 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)
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.
