Purpose: to check children's performance in temporal resolution and ordering tests under the presence of phonological disorders. Methods: the sample was made up of 12 people of both genders with ages between 5 and 13 years, diagnosed with phonological deviation. They were submitted to anamnesis, meatoscopy, audiometric tests, Percentage of Correct Consonants (PCC), the Random Gap Detection Test (RGDT) and the Pitch Pattern Sequence (PPS). Results: in relation to the degree of severity, it was verified that 67% of children had medium phonological deviation, and 33% mediummoderate. In relation to RGDT and PPS tests, there were observed normal values, according to the normative standards. Comparing the performance in PPS test and the degree of severity, we observed that the higher the severity is, the worse was the performance. The same does not stand for the RGDT. Conclusions: these results showed that children with phonological deviation should have an adequate performance in temporal processing tests. There was a significant relation between the severity of phonological deviance and the performance in PPS test in our sample. These results demonstrated that the influence of the severity of phonological deviance should be related to the ability of temporal ordering.
