Hello,
We are conducting a meta-analysis on literacy precursors in simultaneous bilingual children (aged ≤ 12 years of age), and are looking to include any unpublished research on the following:

1. Studies on simultaneous bilingual children (i.e., who acquired both bilingual languages at, or prior to the age of 3) investigating literacy precursors (across any language of assessment) in relation to a reading-based literacy outcome measure (such as word or non-word reading, text reading and/or text reading comprehension).

2. Specifically, we are also looking for research on the following literacy precursor skills in simultaneous bilingual children:

Phonological awareness
Letter knowledge
Serial recall/rapid naming
Oral language/listening comprehension
Receptive/expressive vocabulary
Syntactic awareness
Morphological awareness
Working memory
Verbal short-term memory
Non-verbal intelligence
Word decoding
Semantic awareness
Spelling
Visual Attention (VA) span
Orthographic processing
Environmental print awareness
Speech perception
Sentence priming
