How do you tell if your child may be dyslexic? My 8 yr old dd has several issues. She is very smart and eager to learn but certain things have been giving her alot of trouble. We study spelling words and go over and over them. She spells them out loud correctly but when she writes them she almost always spells phonetically or adds letters that don't need to be there. She will flip d's, p's , b's, g's and flips her double didgit numbers and sometimes writes the numbers themselves backwards as well. We study with her and she knows how to do her math and English homework but she makes mistakes with the orders of the letters and numbers and gets a lot of points taken off because of it. I'm wondering if its something else besides being 'lazy' or goofy and not paying attention to what she is doing. What were the signs you child had?
