This project was a longitudinal study, in 121 children, of the predictive value of naming speed and phonological awareness in learning to read and its alterations. Naming letters best predicted the execution of reading and correctly identified 63% of the children who subsequently showed difficulties in reading speed. Such difficulties have been considered the distinctive trait of dyslexia in Spanish. Some tasks of phonological awareness contributed to explaining reading efficiency and comprehension. Children with a double deficit, in naming speed and phonological awareness, had the worst performance in reading. The evaluation of naming speed at early stages can have important implications on diagnosis and intervention in children with difficulties in learning to read.
