Abstract: Recent research with young dyslexic adults indicated that the ability to encode phoneme position might be a crucial factor when describing the quality of phonological representations. The results from a nonword repetition (NWR) task showed that dyslexic young adults didn’t differ from matched controls at the level of phoneme retention but performed significantly worse on the retention of the phonemes’ serial position within the syllable (Geudens, Schraeyen & Sandra, SSSR 2010). As masses of research data highlight the importance of high-quality phonological representations already in early reading development, we will report the results of a study in which the NWR test was administered to young children in this phase.
