They Sing Their Way to Reading
By Matthew Glavach, Ph.D.
This issue of NASET’s LD Report was written by Matthew Glavach, Ph.D. Listening to, playing, reading, and creating music, involves practically every part of the brain. Musical rhythm and language rhythm are the same. Music and literacy are a natural fit. Songs with lyrics complement literacy activities. Music with lyrics can give children a head-start on reading; they may also help children with reading problems including dyslexia.
