"...By recording the automatic brain wave responses of 100 school-aged children to speech sounds, researchers found that the very best readers encoded the sound most consistently while the poorest readers encoded it with the greatest inconsistency.

Decades of research from laboratories worldwide have shown that reading ability is associated with auditory skills, including auditory memory and attention, the ability to rhyme sounds and the ability to categorize rapidly occurring sounds.

Presumably, the brain's response to sound stabilizes when children learn to successfully connect sounds with their meanings. While learning to read is a smooth process for most children, some suffer from dyslexia, a constellation of impairments that make learning to read difficult. A newly discovered biological mechanism appears to play an important role in the reading process and could lead to helping people with dyslexia. 

"We discovered a systematic relationship between reading ability and the consistency with which the brain encodes sounds," says Nina Kraus, Professor of Neurobiology at Northwestern. In prior work, Kraus and colleagues found that the inconsistency with which the poorest readers encode sound could be "fixed" through training. In that study, children with reading impairments were fitted for a year with assistive listening devices that transmitted their teacher's voice directly into their ears. After a year, the children showed improvement not only in reading but also in the consistency with which their brains encoded speech sounds, particularly consonants.
