Appealing for help from early literacy experts. Have you had a student in your classroom that writes from right to left? Which interventions worked? This student writes from the right side of the page to the left. The kindergarten teacher shows the child where to start writing, but after she leaving his side, he reverts back to writing from right to left. Using a dot on the left side of the page to indicate to the child where to start writing has helped, however, without the dot the child is not able to write with correct directionality. He often turns his paper upside down and writes his name at the bottom of the page. At times, the child writes his name upside down. Reversals have improved since the beginning of the year. While reading, books are held upside down. Your suggestions would be appreciated.
