Working procedures reveals a psycho-linguist approach for assessing rhyming abilities, this approach being implemented in the situation of a Pierre- Robin case study. The obtained results were analyzed in the context of an extended assessment session, they being able to underline the presence of a phonological processing deficit in this case. These results stress on the fact that rhyming abilities can be considered predictive factors in developing phonological abilities.
