Finding the Rhythm of LiteracyQ&A with Nina Kraus, Ph.D.
Dana grantee Nina Kraus and her lab discovered that synchronization ability, like tapping your foot along to a beat, matches the rapid brain activity linked to reading, language and phonological skills. Understanding children’s rhythmic strengths and bottlenecks could help teachers help them improve language skills.
