Music, rhythm, rise time perception and developmental dyslexia: Perception of musical meter predicts reading and phonology

Conclusions
The accurate perception of metrical structure may be critical for phonological development and consequently for the development of literacy. Difficulties in metrical processing are associated with basic auditory rise time processing difficulties, suggesting a primary sensory impairment in developmental dyslexia in tracking the lower-frequency modulations in the speech envelope.
