Is it normal for kids in kindergarten to continue to see and write numbers and letters backwards?
Is it normal for my Kindergartener to continue to see and write numbers and letters backwards? He is turning 6 in a month and I am worried that he might have a learning disorder like dyslexia. His teacher is pressuring me to hold him back but i don't know if that is the best choice. He is very active and thrives in all other areas but his focus and learning have me terrified something more might be going on. He tries to look for pictures and guesses. I can give him a word #1 then repeat the word in #3 and he doesn't remember it.
As for the rest.. Get him an exercise ball to sit on. That way he can gently bounce, but still be learning. I know a lot of kids and adults who have to have some movement going on or they can't concentrate and can't learn. A lot of schools are using this method, too.
