My Daughter Reverses Letters, Numbers...

"My daughter often writes numbers and letters backward. Is this related to her ADHD or is it another learning disability?"

by ADDitude's Education Expert

When we see reversals at age eight of this nature we feel a complete psychoeducational battery is in order. She may have a learning disability in addition to her ADHD.

I would have her tested now to find out. About 33% of the children with ADHD have co-occurring learning disability.
