I have a 4-year-old that I’m afraid might have dyslexia. The other day we came to a stop sign and spelled out the letters backwards, and it’s happened a few times since then. Is this normal or should I do something about it?

Most children reverse letters and numbers until about five or six, some longer. I would not be worried. Watch and see if this pattern disappears by the time she finishes kindergarten.
