I have a student in my class who is left-handed (not sure if that makes a difference). He has many problems with letter reversals, but is incredibly inconsistent. He usually begins a writing piece (a story, a spelling test) writing all of the letters correctly. However, he usually writes everything backwards by the end. The letters of the words will be in the correct order, but every letter will be backwards. He even writes the letters in his name backwards at times. I tried to look for a pattern in the letters that he writes backwards, but it is literally every letter that can be written backwards he will write incorrectly. I tried to consult with my school's occupational therapist, but she said that she can only provide me with resources, since the student is not in special education. She provided me with lists of things to try, but many of the resources suggest help with b, d, p, q mix-ups. However, this boy has issues beyond just those four commonly mixed-up letters. From my quick research, it seems that he may have poor muscle memory. Has anyone ever seen anything like this? His mom and I are completely stumped, and would really like to get this under control before he moves on to 3rd grade.
