The phonological disorder occurs when there is some difficulty to get and to use the sounds in speech. The purpose of this study is to feature the performance on reading and writing of the students with phonological disorder. Twenty-eight students, ranged in age from 7 to 9 years, with changes in speech, took part in this study. The sample was composed of 70% of boys and 30% of girls. The results revealed that from 57% to 85% of the students on the 1 st. and 3 rd. grades, showed phonological disorder on orality and writing, while 100% of the students on the 4 th grade, showed phonological disorder only in writing and reading. The findings of this study demonstrated that oral language is intrinsically related to the reading and writing performance, and changes of the phonological processing in a child can cause alterations on the reading and writing performance.
