Study Proves ABC Music & Me Program Boosts Literacy Development
GREENSBORO, NC – October 15, 2013 – SEG Measurement, an independent research firm, conducted a national study of nearly 300 preschool children, aged three years through five years, to test the ability of Kindermusik International’s curriculum ABC Music & Me to affect students’ literacy development.
During the study, students in both the treatment and control groups were tested with the Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening (PALS) Pre-K Assessment at both the beginning and end of the school year. Results indicated that students in the treatment group showed a 32% higher gain in PALS scores over the control group, indicating greater gains in student’s literacy as a result of the curriculum.
“Students using Kindermusik showed significantly greater improvement in literacy and language skills than students who did not use Kindermusik,” said Scott Elliot, president of SEG Measurement.
