Applying Advanced Interpretation of the Feifer Assessment of Writing (FAW) to Improve Students' Writing Skills

Date: April 27, 2022

Time: 12:00PM - 01:00PM

You must be registered to participate!

The Feifer Assessment of Writing (FAW) is a diagnostic achievement test. When used together, FAW skills, error, and behavior analyses provide an in-depth view of a student’s specific strengths and weaknesses. This information can inform intervention planning and allow practitioners to tailor their support to a student’s specific needs rather than using a one-size-fits-all approach. Practitioners will understand and learn how to incorporate skills, error, and behavior analyses into their assessment of a student’s written language.

Learning Objectives:
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Define the term dysgraphia and use a brain-based educational model to diagnose written language disorders by classifying them into three distinct subtypes.
  • Understand how to use the FAW as a comprehensive diagnostic achievement measure to better diagnose and remediate written language disorders in children.
  • Identify and describe the importance of how skills, error analyses, and behavior analyses provide insight to better understand written language strengths and weaknesses.
  • Apply FAW interpretation strategies to a case study example to better inform intervention planning.

Qualification Level Required: S
