Abstract

Modifying the alphabet for beginning readers is discussed. Despite problems with previous, radical modifications, recent advances in psychology, education, and computer technology support new types of modifications that emphasize properties of the alphabet known to be important in the development of reading skills. An example of a modified alphabet is described. It makes use of computer desk-top publishing technology to ease the “transition period” from the modified alphabet to the traditional alphabet, and to individualize the alphabet for individual classrooms or students.
