Dyslexia - signs of? Rss

My DD is 5 and starting school next month. Have just noticed lately that a few times she has written a couple of letters within a word around the wrong way. Should I be concerned or is this quite common and just cause she doesn't write that much yet?
Letter reversals are very common up until about age 8 smile
I agree with PP, she hasn't even started school yet so don't worry. The first year is very focussed on letters and numbers.

very common!
Both my DS and DD1 have also at various stage written backwards (eg right to left) but these things get worked out.

good luck for your DD's adventure at school!

Thank you so much ladies for easing my mind. I was hoping it was nothing, but you know what it's like, if something niggles in your brain you need to check it out so you don't kick yourself for not doing so later down the track!!
