Marina Rossi: Exploring the Role of Rhythm Processing in Developmental Dyslexia: Unraveling the Relationship with Phonological Abilities
Developmental Dyslexia (DD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by persistent reading and spelling difficulties, frequently accompanied by an extensive array of comorbidities. Despite this variability, a phonological deficit remains the most consistently observed trait across different phenotypic expressions in DD while a rhythm deficit (with or without an associated acoustic impairment) has been hypothesized as the core etiological factor. Current evidence in support of a rhythm deficit in DD is based mainly on English and shows  conflicting results. This work extends the study of rhythm issues in DD to include Italian. Abstract
