The three necessary phonological processing abilities are phonological awareness, phonological memory and the ability to retrieve auditory information from long term memory (referred to as rapid naming). A deficit in some aspect of phonological processing is considered to be the cause of the most common form of reading disability, difficulty decoding individual words (Wagner, Torgesen, & Rashotte, 1999). Students need to access and manipulate the individual sounds in words, phonological awareness. Additionally, they must automatically identify the sounds associated with letters. A reader also has to temporarily store phonological information in order to decode words.
