Effets d’un entraînement cognitivo-musical en grande section de maternelle sur les compétences reliées à la lecture

Abstract : Decades of research have suggested that musical training has effects on the brain and on the development of academic skills. Notably, music appears to be an effective way to improve language skills associated to reading ability. Recent studies provide new evidence on the beneficial role of music training for remediation in children with specific reading disorders, together with speech therapy intervention. To investigate the assumption of a transfer from musical training to speech, we studied the effects of multimodal musical activities to enhance predictors of reading achievement, in kindergarten and first grade children. 24 unselected children were split into a test and a control group. The test group received musical training whereas the control group had visual arts training. We performed pre-training and post-training tests. This experiment was supplemented by individual training on one child of the music group because he showed weaker performance at the end of first grade. Small differences after training between test and control groups did not offer evidence of a significant effect of our musical training. However, improvement in phonological awareness and phonological short-term memory found after musical trainings calls for further studies examining music-based training programs for children with language learning impairment.
