Children under the age of 7 often write their numbers and letters backwards. Many parents wonder if this will cause problems with their math skills. And if they are over age 7, that may give additional concern. If this is your child should you be concerned? Not necessarily before age 7 however, there is help that you can provide your child.
Writing backwards (teachers may call it reversal) may occur because of how their brain processes what they see and it can cause challenges in math for them. There are ways you can help your child and one way is called the multisensory approach. There is a wonderful Q&A article on Understood.org that will help you understand more about number reversal and how to help your child through it.
