    According to the article above, you're right. However, I've also known experts to claim that young children have trouble visually processing the shapes of letters. My brother was mildly dyslexic. When he was 5 or 6 he carved his name in a wooden door -- in what looks like mirror writing.

    Please check your book to see what answer your teacher wants.
