The authors present the results of a 2-year longitudinal study of 90 British children beginning at school entry when they were 4 years 9 months old (range = 4 years 2 months to 5 years 2 months). The relationships among early phonological skills, letter knowledge, grammatical skills, and vocabulary knowledge were investigated as predictors of word recognition and reading comprehension. Word recognition skills were consistently predicted by earlier measures of letter knowledge and phoneme… Expand

Phonemes, rimes and the mechanisms of early reading development.
Our paper (Hulme, et al., 2002) provides further evidence that phoneme-level skills are better predictors of children's early progress in learning to read than are onset-rime skills. The commentariesExpand
Phoneme awareness is a better predictor of early reading skill than onset-rime awareness.
TLDR
Children in the early stages of learning to read were administered three different tasks and measures of phoneme awareness were the best concurrent and longitudinal predictors of reading skill with onset-rime skills making no additional predictive contribution once phonemic skills were accounted for.

Semantic processing and the development of word-recognition skills: Evidence from children with reading comprehension difficulties.

Specific contributions of phonological abilities to early reading acquisition: Results from a Dutch latent variable longitudinal study
Contributions of phonological abilities to early reading acquisition were examined in a longitudinal study of 166 Dutch children from kindergarten through 2nd grade. Various phonological abilities,Expand
Segmentation, not rhyming, predicts early progress in learning to read.
TLDR
Segmentation was strongly correlated with attainment in reading and spelling at the end of the first year at school, though Rhyming was not, and rhyming had started to exert a predictive effect of spelling, but not on reading. Expand
Phonemes, rhymes, and intelligence as predictors of children's responsiveness to remedial reading instruction: evidence from a longitudinal intervention study.
TLDR
An analysis of data from a longitudinal intervention study with 7-year-old poor readers finds that for reading accuracy, Verbal Ability, Nonverbal Ability, Phonological Memory, and Rhyme made no significant contribution to predicting responsiveness to teaching, while Phoneme Manipulation was a very strong predictor.

The development of spelling skills was investigated at four points over the first 3 years of schooling in 153 British children. In order to uncover the developmental relationship between spelling andExpand
Bidirectional relations of phonological sensitivity and prereading abilities: evidence from a preschool sample.
TLDR
The results indicate that the reciprocal relation between reading and phonological sensitivity is present relatively early in the development of literacy skills, prior to the onset of formal reading instruction. Expand

TLDR
An examination of two independent data sets suggests that, although onset-rime sensitivity typically predicts school entrants' later word reading skill, phoneme sensitivity does predict more variation, but multiple regression analyses do not reveal the level of phonological sensitivity that children need in order to understand alphabetic reading instruction.

Phonological skills are important in learning to read Chinese.
TLDR
The findings showed that prereading phonological skills significantly predicted the children's reading performance in Chinese 2 and 3 years later, even after controlling for the effects of age, IQ, and mother's education. Expand
