Is there now way to get scores in binary/ordinal CFA?

or is there an alternative approach to try to relate the results of the first/second axes of a CFA with ordinal data to a continuous variable?

i simply wish to regress the values against an external variable...

One can obtain factor scores when factor indicators are binary and/or ordinal. It would be best to estimate the full model simultaneously by regressing the factor on the external variable.
