Free Early Reading Screenings (K-2nd grade)
For more than 15 years, Marburn has offered Free Early Reading Screenings (FERS) to the central Ohio community. These screenings offer an accessible resource to caregivers of kindergarten, first, and second graders who have questions or concerns about their child's reading development. While the screening is not a diagnostic tool, it does identify if a child is likely to encounter difficulty learning to read.
The FERS program allows experts from Marburn to provide information on a child's mastery of critical early literacy skills, such as phonological awareness, letter recognition, and letter sounds. After the screening is complete, Marburn will discuss the results with the caregiver and the recommended next steps. Please note that this program is NOT designed to diagnose any specific learning disability.
