Beat Keeping and Reading?

A recent study done by Dr. Nina Kraus at Northwestern University, show a link between the ability to keep a beat and reading skill. Children in the study who were better able to synchronize a beat with the study examiner showed higher pre-reading skills (phonological processing, auditory short term memory and rapid naming) than children who were not able to synchronize the beat.  This information may be able to be used to discover children at risk for reading disorder.   It may also be able to be used to design treatment approaches!
