My son just turned 6 the end of March so we are doing Kindergarten things.

He seems to have a problem with 5's and 2's. He mixes them up and sometimes when writing(esp. 5's)he does it backwards.

Is this a sign of dyslexic tendencies or typical for someone just learning it all??

It's pretty common for kids to occasionally write some numbers and letters backwards even through first grade.

I agree. Also, boys typically learn a little slower than girls.

Makes me feel better thanks much. I figured it was probably that but with 2 sisters having dyslexic issues I started wondering.

My son will be 8 in June and he still reverses numbers 5,4,3,7,9,2, and 1. It's not all the time but it's enough to know he's usually guessing what way it goes. It has not hindered his math so far.
