Yes, Maria is still transposing letters


This is on the dry erase board in the schoolroom.

The good news is, Maria is scheduled to start vision therapy next week. I'm so excited! I'm really hoping this will make a dramatic difference for her. We've got nothing else to fall on if it doesn't, that's for sure, and we are investing a lot of money in it that we really can't afford. But we've got to try something!

Is Maria left handed?

No, she's not, why? She does have that "lefty personality", very artistic and all of that.
This has been an ongoing thing for years. It's actually getting better somewhat, but still,,,she struggles a lot with reading and spelling too. We had her tested, I thought for sure she was dyslexic, but she just tested with an "expressive language disability"....

My brother is left-handed and while he didn't transpose letters he would do mirror image writing when he was about 6 years old. Just wondered if transposing and mirror image might be related.

My 9yo does this all the time. I didn't realize it was an actual problem. :( My 9yo IS a lefty though..interesting.
