Initial reading alphabet
This alphabet was designed for children with serious working memory problems. Dr. T.M. Nelson provided the initial concept explaining that, unlike letters, pattern perception does not require working memory. Through testing procedures the 500 patterns designed by Frascara were used to arrive at the 30 most distinguishable ones. Attached to the backgrounds of letters they led to successful results reported in specialized literature.
