Theory Behind the Software
supports the use of music as a mnemonic device for the learning
and recall of new information. Music also plays a role in
focusing attention and providing a motivating environment
for learning. In addition, educational research confirms that
we learn and retain information better when we find it interesting
Readers uses repetition of the words and lyrics, along
with speed changes in the music to facilitate word recognition
and concept comprehension. Music processing uses different
part of the brain and is more likely to engage children in
the learning process. With repeat usage, learning to read
can be achieved via repetition and the traditional ABA techniques
provided in the Sound Readers software.
