The need of tuning into speech in noisy and reverberant classrooms is a challenge for good speech communication and literacy development at school. Reading development can be compromised if children are exposed to inadequate acoustics, especially those with poor neural processing in speech discrimination. This work reports preliminary results on the influence of classroom acoustics on the reading speed of 94 Italian second-graders. Speech clarity (C50) was found to be significantly correlated with all the investigated reading tasks, while no significant correlations were found with reverberation time.
