Hi Kathleen!
   Reversing the letters you mentioned is very typical up to about third 
grade and cannot be viewed as a sign of dyslexia.
    Actually, new technology has led to new info about dyslexia.  An area in 
the brain above the left ear is where the problem occurs!  Dyslexic people 
have difficulty hearing and separating phonemes.In small children, you will 
notice difficulty in rhyming or answering questions such as, "What is the 
word smile without the "s".
 Dyslexic readers tend to memorize words by shape. There is a great book, 
"Overcoming Dyslexia" by Sally
(not sure of last name and book is at school) Shaywitz?
