Abstract: A high number of children with Specific Language Impairment (SLI) develop dyslexia. Yet, it is hard to predict the individual risk. In a longitudinal study 24 Dutch preschoolers with SLI were followed up into grade 3. Progress was compared with 24 matched controls. Relations between early phonological and oral language skills versus later literacy skills were examined. Results show that preschool rapid automatized naming is a good predictor for literacy in children with SLI.
