Identifying and addressing characteristics of a math learning disability gives clinicians and educators the tools they need to develop appropriate interventions specific to the individual child, so he or she can succeed in math.
The Feifer Assessment of Mathematics™ (FAM™) isolates, measures, and quantifies three subtypes of developmental dyscalculia to explain—from a neurodevelopmental perspective—why a child may have difficulty in math.
The 19 subtests of the FAM help determine not only if a child has the characteristics of a general math learning disability (MLD), but also his or her specific subtype of dyscalculia:
- Procedural: A deficit in the ability to count, order, or sequence numbers or mathematical procedures.
- Verbal: An inability to use language-based procedures to assist with arithmetic skills.
- Semantic: A core deficit in both visual-spatial and conceptual components.
Created by Steven G. Feifer, DEd, author of the Feifer Assessment of Reading™ (FAR™), the FAM is:
- Unique: It’s the only math assessment that identifies specifically WHY a student is struggling in math by identifying his or her specific type of dyscalculia.
- Fast: The available Screening Form takes just 15 minutes, and comprehensive testing can be completed in less than an hour.
- Easy: Administration and scoring are straightforward and streamlined.
