Summary

The final report and addendum document a 2-year study which examined the efficacy of a rhythmic training program to improve rhythmic skill in children with mild mental retardation or learning disabilities (year 1) or hearing impairments (year 2). The study was based on the writings of the Soviet neuropsychologist A. R. Luria suggesting the value of improving rhythmicity skills in disabled individuals. During the first year of the study 268 learning disabled and educable mentally retarded children between the ages of 7 and 10 participated, while during the second year participants were 43 children between the ages of 9 and 14 from the Tennessee School for the Deaf. Results indicated the treatment groups performed significantly better than the control groups on the rhythmic testing protocol. Both treatment and control groups were found to improve significantly in response to tactile stimuli rather than visual stimuli. (DB)
