Early Childhood Lecture: "The Music Language Connection: Linking Music, Language and Executive Function Skills" with Dr. Nadine Gaab, Boston Children’s Hospital Thursday, April 9, 2015 at 7:00pm

Research shows early language and reading abilities to be linked with a variety of musical skills and elements of music perception in children. It has also been shown that struggling readers can show difficulties with music perception. Dr. Gaab will summarize to what extent different aspects of music perception are associated with language and reading abilities and whether music may be utilized as a diagnostic and intervention tool for language based learning disabilities.
