Overcoming Dyslexia: Music, Rhythm, and Prosody

By Matthew Glavach. Ph.D.

This issue of NASET’s LD Report was written by Matthew Glavach, Ph.D. While songs and rhymes are known to help children develop phonological awareness (sound elements in words), new research on speech rhythm is promising for children with dyslexia. And it is something every parent and teacher can do. The author’s research has found that prosodic reading combined with repeated reading can lead to significant gains for struggling readers. The program can be found in his new book: Overcome Dyslexia Now, and his music and reading program, Phonics Songs, plus with twenty-five songs by Donny and Marie Osmond are available at his website: StrugglingReaders.com. and on Amazon.
