My son is 6 years old. He started kindergarten this year. At the start of the year I started noticing his work coming home from school had frequently backwards letters and numbers. P was q. q was p. S was backwards. 2 was 5. 5 was 2. Etc. Pretty much if it could be turned around it was. At his fall conference I expressed my concern to his teacher, who said it's very common at this age. However its getting worse. His turning words and letters backwards went from frequent to all the time. Today his teacher sent a letter home saying "Xxxx writes his letters backwards often"
What I don't understand is he is in advanced reading and math. He is extremely bright. I am not saying dyslexic children are not intelligent, but from what I've read reading and math are both struggling. Reading he'll sometimes say deb for bed or dag for bag.
I have VERY mild dyslexia. My English teacher in high-school noticed it and my mother said I was just being lazy. I have trouble with left and right and b and d, but that's the extent of it.
