What is it about?
Past research has suggested that poor speech skills affect later reading ability when a language disorder is also present. This study showed that poor speech sequencing skills and the presence of phonological speech errors by themselves can lead directly to later challenges with early reading skills.

Why is it important?
Speech skills are developed earlier than reading skills. Understanding the profile of speech and language skills that conveys the most risk for later reading disabilities will allow speech-language pathologists to provide targeted interventions to help mitigate this risk.
