In a cross-sectional study with two groups of K3 and P1 children, we found that, with nonverbal IQ, phonological and orthographic awareness controlled, reading ability predicts writing skills in K3, but not writing predicting reading. However, in P1, bidirectional relationship was evident between reading and writing in Chinese. Copyright © 2018 Association for Psychological Science.
