Previous research indicates that auditory temporal processing is related to phonological processing abilities in individuals with reading difficulties; however, additional research is needed that comprehensively investigates the relationships between specific auditory temporal processing, language, and reading skills in children. The purpose of the current study was to examine these relationships in school-aged children, using a comprehensive battery of clinically-relevant assessments. Statistically significant positive relationships were found between performance on tasks of temporal ordering and phonological awareness. No significant relationships were found between temporal resolution and phonological awareness tasks, or between temporal processing and reading tasks. This information provides additional insight into the relationship between auditory temporal processing and the phonological awareness skills that are critical for success in reading, and may contribute to the development of interventions to improve the phonological awareness abilities of struggling readers.
