In another recent NPR post, there's a discussion of an early childhood test that claims to be a clear indicator of a person's eventual reading ability. According to neurobiologist Nina Kraus and her team at Northwestern University, they have developed a half-hour-long test that evaluates small children's ability to process sounds. Children's brains with a higher ability to distinguish and catalog sounds tend to have an easier time learning to read; children without those abilities may need more help.
