Can dyslexic people read music?

Interesting question, actually. I'd assume they have more difficulty than non-dyslexics.

Anyone know for sure?

I'm dyslexic, and I can read music just fine. I just see the individual numbers or letters backwards. I don't know if that goes for all dyslexics though.
#16
I have dyslexic and dyspraxic friends who play music. They both hinder them a bit but they're good musicians .

That's kind of funny, here lots of people refer to urination as "slashing" e.g. "Man I really need to have a slash!"...

I have dyspraxia. It hinders, doesn't mean I can't play guitar.

Dysparxia is more than just co-ordination, although it is one of the most major things. Google it. I get distracted easily as I always tend to wonder off, I lose focus very easily...

EDIT: Read the my post underneath...

EDIT EDIT: Dyslexia can be a nightmare in Maths. My Dad, Grandads and most of my Great Grandads were engineers. My younger brother, although is very clever in practice, is not clever in maths academically because he struggles to explain things on paper or out in words. He can work with things physically and solve problems, just not in any other manner.

Wrong! Dysparxics can have sequencing problems which can cause problems with Maths. It can also cause problems in following instructions, etc... I do Maths at college and I rarely have problems with it, although it affects my English skills, particularly grammar.

I was about seven, with a lot of speech therapy, before I could speak properly. I struggle to pronounce unfamiliar sounds, which hindered me badly in French

Regardless; dyspraxia is more harmful to a child's development than any other time in life. I show traits a lot but am completely fine, it's not something to worry about.

Yeah I know, sorry, I was just trying to put it in the simplist form possible so I didn't have to write an essay . I obviously can't explain it was well as someone who has it!

Dyslexia and Dysparxia is caused by the brain working differently (I know dyspraxia is not working well with left and right side of the brains or something, not sure on dyslexia) and can cause all sorts of symptoms. For example, I get short tempered and anxious with hot temperatures.

Fairy nuft... I used to understand them/know more about them when I was younger and ended up being tested every month.

I wouldn't imagine so. Dyslexia is a word processing disorder as far as I know (not much,) and its the order of letters that is affected.

One therapeutic treatment involves laying a lined tool across the page, so it has been found that lines and grids remediate the problem to an extent.

That being the case, and the fact that music is not linear, but 2-dimensional I wouldn't think there is a simple and direct link.

Realistically you would find some kind of complex interaction in the bell curves of "readers" and "non-readers" amongst dyslexics and non-dyslexics. Basically some dyslexics have no difficulty and read music very well, and some non-dyslexics can't read and have a great deal of difficulty.

The important thing would be finding the Median, and if the Median for both conditions was not far enough from the other condition then no correlation could be established.

Sounds like gobbledegook, but it's how science works, especially neuroscience and psychology.
