Abstract

In recent years, dyslexia causes and remediation have been an active area of research in the education literature. This article reviews research on the neurological bases of dyslexia, examines the effects of music training on dyslexia, and investigates interrelationships between music, the brain, and dyslexia. Results in studies on the neurobiology of dyslexia lend credence to the effects of music training on dyslexia. I have selected studies on the effects of music training on dyslexia examining rhythmic timing skills, rapid auditory processing skills, auditory stream biasing, and noise exclusion. These areas of study parallel various causal theories of dyslexia.
