ABSTRACT

This study investigated how copying skills were related to word reading and writing in 93 kindergarteners, aged 4 and 5. Children were to complete copying tasks, cognitive-linguistic tasks, and reading and writing measures. Hierarchical regression analyses were conducted to investigate whether copying skills would predict word reading and writing. Results showed that copying skills explained word writing but not word reading after controlling for age, nonverbal intelligence, and cognitive-linguistic skills. Multiple mediation analyses were conducted to find out whether the relations of copying skills with literacy were mediated by cognitive-linguistic skills. Different results were observed for word reading and writing; syllable awareness and orthographic knowledge mediated between copying skills and word reading, whereas syllable and phoneme awareness mediated between copying skills and word writing.
