The early identification of reading difficulties is a desirable goal with many advantages. If children who are likely to find the early stages of learning difficult can be identified, remedial help can be given in the hope of preventing reading failure. An impressive amount of evidence, gathered over the past 30 years, shows that the best predictors of early reading progress are children's phonological skills.
The Phonological Abilities Test consists of six tests:

Word Completion - Syllables and Phonemes
Phoneme Deletion - Beginning Sounds and End Sounds
- A Speech Rate subtest
- A Letter-Knowledge subtest.
