Investigates effects longitudinally of phonological processing and oral language abilities on children's reading and reading disabilities. Compares second grade good and poor readers on measures of oral language and phonological processing taken in kindergarten. Suggests that language-based theories of reading and reading disabilities must include both phonological processing and oral language abilities. (NH)
