Student writing name backwards

I have a left handed student who frequently writes her name backwards (i.e if her name was "Lucy" she'd write it ycuL) because she's writing it right to left.

I know this is a common/expected error, especially for left handed children. She IS able to write it in the correct direction with prompting (and sometimes does so on her own). What, if anything, should I do to help her do so more consistently?

I give a visual prompt where she begins writing...a dot on the left, an arrow, whatever. They do self-correct eventually.

I use a visual prompt as well. Once they have the left-right cemented it will be fine. Sometimes it just takes a while.
