Invented spelling is the name for children’s misspellings before they know the rules adults use to spell, often before they know how to read. In some respects inventive spellers are learning to write as they learned to talk. Invented spelling is not so much an approach to writing as it is a way of removing obstacles in the path of a young writer. Children don’t automatically and spontaneously arrive at the correct spelling of a word simply because they read.
