HI, its my first post here. My 7 year old son's teacher has mentioned that she thinks he may be dyslexic, It came as quite a surprise and I felt quite defensive to start with but now I'm just feeling a bit lost.
He reads quite well, he is writing ok but often mis-writes 3, 7, 5,2 backwards as well as the letters b,d, & s. His maths work is ok, the understanding of it I mean.
The teacher said that he would be going out of class to get extra help and she gave me some sheets so I could get him to practice the above letters and numbers. This was about a month ago, some days he gets things right for me other days its mixed and some days he seems to be getting every number backwards. I can't see that this has made any improvement as yet, I don't know what I should be doing to help, can someone please point me in the right direction.
Many thanks in advance
