Ok ...my son is 6 years old and for the past years has had some episodes that make me believe that he may have dyslexia. He will right some numbers and letters backwards. Those that are typical for his age such as the b and d, and the 5 and s's are confused some. Those were a little bothersome but what really caught my attention is that two times now he has written down full words backwards, one of which was copied from the blackboard at school....actually it was a two word pharse...he wrote stac kcalb......??? black cats...he knew what it was but it took us forever to figure that one out.. that was copied from the board back in october...a week prior to this incident he had written the word book backwards at home...he had the words fine just that one backwards. Should I be concerned? Is it too early to worry about these trends?
