Looking for terminology

I have a student who writes her numbers in reverse (3rd grade).

For example, in second I noticed 27 was 72, 38 was 83, 14 was 41, etc.

Now she’s in 3rd and we are working on 3 digit numbers and she is writing them right to left. 203 is 302 (she writes the 2 first, then the 0, and then the 3). She is starting to catch herself doing it more and correcting herself but it’s becoming more prominent that’s she’s writing in reverse.

When I search, most results are writing numbers backwards or confusing a 6 for a 9. What is the terminology I am looking for for
this issue?

She tests middle of 1st grade and struggles even more in reading. Is this dyslexia or is there something else going on?

Would appreciate any ideas. Thanks!

You might want to google "symptoms of dyslexia" -- I'll try to post a link to the WebMD site--it lists them by age/grade level. I'm not suggesting that you try to diagnose, certainly. If she exhibits more than one "symptom," I might consult with admin or guidance counselor about having her tested. There is always some concern that kids will "hide" their symptoms and that potentially makes the problem worse as the demands increase in later years.

Maybe dyscalculia? Because she struggles with reading as well, dyslexia could be the correct terminology.

Does she show marked improvement if the text and questions are orally read to her versus reading them herself? If so, take the steps for dyslexia testing in your district.

had a conference on Dyslexia and writing in reverse was a sign, especially if it occurs after 2nd grade. I would request your reading specialist to do a Dyslexia screener. In my school, we can't diagnose dyslexia. We can look for "signs of dyslexia" though and recommend and implement "practices that would help them if they had dyslexia."
