You may have heard some people say reversals are a normal part of a child’s life, but they don’t have to be. There are strategies and steps you can take to ensure that children are writing their letters and numbers in the correct formation. Older children who have difficulty with forming their letters correctly may avoid writing and their overall school performance may suffer.
In this edWebinar, you will learn hands-on strategies for working with children who experience difficulty with letter reversals. You will leave with an understanding of WHY children reverse letters. Additionally, you’ll understand the learning progression of symbols to writing letters and practical strategies to intervene and provide support to struggling students.
This edWebinar will be of interest to those who work with children ages preK through fifth grade.
