Second, converging evidence suggests that specific phonological tasks, especially phonemic segmentation, are strong predictors of beginning reading ability (Muter, Hulme, Snowling, & Taylor, 1997; Kaminski & Good, 1996; O'Connor & Jenkins, 1999; Snider, 1997; Spector, 1992; Wagner, Torgesen, Rashotte, Hecht, Barker, et al.
Much of our new confidence in being able to identify children at risk for reading failure before reading instruction begins depends on the use of tests of phonemic awareness, since this ability has been shown to be causally related to the growth of early word reading skills (Lundberg, Frost, & Peterson, 1988; Wagner et al.
While most students adequately learn early reading skills (such as phonemic awareness and letter-sound correspondence), others have great difficulty in acquiring such entry level decoding skills (Beck & Juel, 1995).

This study assessed the effects of McGraw Hill Phonemic Awareness on the phonemic awareness skills of 5 preschool children with developmental delays.
Even though reading requires phonemic awareness, skills that severely learning disabled students don't have, those skills can be developed through the use of students language experiences.
Regina Walsh in her article 'Word games: the importance of defining phonemic awareness' highlights the importance of phonemic awareness for assisting young children to read and write and suggests that the debate around this has been due in part to inaccurate definitions of the concept.
