    Default Letter Reversals

    Hello Ladies,

    My 9yo daughter is still consistently making letter and number reversals when she writes.
    She was a "late" reader and didn't start reading fluently until her 8th birthday, but since then she has taken off! She enjoys reading and regularly reads chapter books etc.

    I'm wondering:
    1) what can I do to help her write those pesky numbers and letters correctly
    2) Should I be concerned that she is still dong this?
    3) Do you have any recommended resources for me?

    Thanks!

    Does she write cursive? That usually solves the problem with letter reversal as long as there is no other reading or writing issues going on.
