Phoneme Awareness and Future Reading Ability.
Mann, Virginia A.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v26 n4 p259-69 Apr 1993
One hundred kindergarten children completed a phoneme segmentation test, an invented spelling test, and two tests of visual-motor ability. Scores on both tests of phoneme awareness predicted between 30% and 40% of variance in reading ability a year later, while visual-motor scores bore a less substantial relationship to future reading ability.
