I had a friend who could write mirror writing as fast as she could write
forwards: we could have put them together as she wd have been the
perfect notetaker!

I had a student who preferred to read mirror writing - not sure this is
covered by universal design strategies!  

Friday nearly here :>))
Best Wishes E.A.

Still; Thursday but...There is no such thing as a strategy that only
works with students with dyslexia. Any well thought out strategy will
work for the majority of students. This is the basis for universal
design. Consider the learning needs of those with additional needs and
you improve the learning environment of all.
