I have a question about dyslexia. Kolby is in 2nd grade. He writes his lower case 'p' 'd' 'j' 'z' and his '2' and '5' and '7' all backwards. Could that be a sign of dyslexia? I'm super worried about it. None of his teachers have said anything. I don't remember him doing it last year, so maybe he's just getting in a hurry. TIA!

Thanks for all that info, Rebekah! I knew you would know. I may just be over-reacting, but it just seemed odd to me that he writes those letters backwards. He does a great job with reading, so I may not have anything to worry about, but he does get confused with some letters, and will say the word and not recognize that it isn't a real word, kwim?

It may just be an attention thing as well. He's ready to play when he gets home and I make him do homework first. Maybe next week, I'll try reversing it and let him play a bit before homework. Thanks again!

Nathaniel did do a lot of guess on words as well.

I know, this year Kolby must be very busy during school. He has no interest in doing anything after school but play.
