Botnar project: Developing Prototype Assistive Listening Technology for Remediating Developmental Dyslexia

"Listening to rhythm in children": an intervention project aimed at children with reading difficulties

This five-year longitudinal study will develop assistive listening technology to help the dyslexic brain to hear rhythm patterns. It will also assess dyslexic children's progress in reaching reading and language milestones when supported by different educational interventions. The educational interventions include a poetry/music oral rhythm intervention, and the interventions using assistive listening technology. The new technology filters natural speech to amplify the rhythm cues in the speech signal that are processed poorly by children with dyslexia. We hope that in due course this project will help to improve dyslexic children's educational experiences and quality of life.
