Auditory Processing and Early Literacy Skills in a Preschool and Kindergarten Population
Corriveau, Kathleen H.; Goswami, Usha; Thomson, Jennifer M.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v43 n4 p369-382 Jul-Aug 2010
Although the relationship between auditory processing and reading-related skills has been investigated in school-age populations and in prospective studies of infants, understanding of the relationship between these variables in the period immediately preceding formal reading instruction is sparse. In this cross-sectional study, auditory processing, phonological awareness, early literacy skills, and general ability were assessed in a mixed sample of 88 three- to six-year-old children both cross-sectionally and longitudinally. Results from both cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses suggest the importance of early auditory rise time sensitivity in developing phonological awareness skills, especially in the development of rhyme awareness. (Contains 7 tables and 3 figures.)
