    dyslexia

    It's very common for kids to make certain reversals, even up through second grade. The b's and d's, 5's and 6's and 7's are reversed most often in my class. Have you tried some tactile activities? Clay is fun. Also, cutting some letters from sandpaper and having her trace them with her finger might help.

    If your student is reading that well, chances are she doesn't have dyslexia. But if you're really worried, I'd talk to your school's resource teacher before you mention anything to her mom.
