Can children learn to read before they can talk

Bob Zenhausern

We know children can recognize pictures and patterns very early. Can they distinguish among patterns of letters? If they can, they can match pictures and words and so can read. Such a matching can happen before saying the name of a picture and so the child will read before speaking.

I think we need to first teach them how to talk, make them learn the pattern of letters and once they get familiarize themselves with learning they gradually start learning the art of reading.

Why do they have to talk first? Can't they learn patterns of letters without being able to talk?
