Follows the writing skill development of 154 Finnish-speaking children. Focuses on predictive associations between preschool writing readiness skills and later mechanics of writing, as well as between word recognition skill, mechanics of writing, and composition coherence. Indicates that both mechanics of writing and composition coherence could be predicted from performance on the same skill at an earlier point in time. (SG)
