A new student transferred into my classroom last month and I immediately figured out she is functioning WAY below grade level. I've been trying to work with her several days a week and I'm wondering if she's dyslexic. She writes several words backwards, including her name, and often tries to read text from right to left. I'm not sure if it's a developmental thing because she knows so little, or if it might be dyslexia. In my district, I must have a MINIMUM of six weeks' documented intervention before I can go to the counselor with my issue. Even then, it's not likely anything will happen by the end of this school year, or even next year. Anyone know of anything that indicates dyslexia? If so, what are some activities I can do with her! Thanks!
