Badian, Nathlie A.
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v2 n4 p307-26 Dec 1990
Finds the best preschool predictors of reading were naming tests for boys and general verbal ability for girls; for kindergartners, a quantitative test surpassed test of phonemic awareness and language in predicting reading; effects of birth order were strongest at the preschool level; socioeconomic status had significant effects only for boys, and a speech delay only for girls.
