Dyslexia linked to difficulties in perceiving rhythmic patterns in music

Post by Guest on Sat May 23, 2015 7:06 am

Children with dyslexia often find it difficult to count the number of syllables in spoken words or to determine whether words rhyme. These subtle difficulties are seen across languages with different writing systems and they indicate that the dyslexic brain has trouble processing the way that sounds in spoken language are structured. Researchers have now shown, using a music task, that this is linked to a broader difficulty in perceiving rhythmic patterns, or metrical structure.

I must admit as a child i had very little interest in music of the day and lacked rhythm that meant i was consigned to the triangle in the few music classes i was in. even that was difficult and later worked on the school farm instead of music classes

in later life i tried to learn the guitar and piano and can knock out a tune on both nowadays and must admit i feel my spelling has "somewhat" improved over the years
but a lack of being able to hold a rhythm for longer than a few minutes or two is something i am well aware of to this day  but still can not recite my times table  Embarassed

interesting research

Wow, I actually did a story at least a decade ago about a doctor who was treating dyslexic kids with what he called "rhythm therapy." He got great testimonials from parents but I always wondered whether it was B.S. or not ...

Hey kd, if it makes you feel any better, just note that some of the best musicians and composers ever have completely ignored rhythm and time signatures Smile

To arrhythmia!

Oh man, just realized that cuts off at a really good part. The whole piece is great but it's hard to find the time to listen to it these days ...

Thanks for that ben
But i a long time ago gave up worrying about the spelling police morons who think it`s a sign of being undereducated or just plain stupid as is often the admonishment from such people  Laughing
and that is one of my favourite pieces of music i do love classical

I have to admit, I have been in past lives one of those who judged people on their spelling. I had an influential teacher who taught me that ... luckily I grew out of it Smile

Yeah, that symphony is probably my very favorite. I've never listened to it with anything other than rapt attention, which is more than I can say for almost every other piece of music I've heard.

What the hell, let's put up the whole thing and hopefully drag a few of these troglodytes up out of the muck Smile

My daughter was both dyslexic and dimetric (not being able to judge distances etc). However she could pick up any instrument and play it and had a Grade 8 Distinction on the flute. She also wrote symphonies that have been played by orchestras. So I guess it's one of those things that is different for all.
