p and q confusion worksheet


What is the theory behind the p and q worksheet?

Letter reversals are not uncommon and can easily be overcome. Writing p as a and q as p is a very common mistake that kids make. In functional reading and writing, it is considered a mistake and it can result in lower self-esteem and lower confidence in children. However, using different effective learning strategies can help a child differentiate between the two letters and learn the alphabet accurately. Children who continue to confuse letters despite remedial efforts need to be evaluated for Dyslexia.
