I Can Read Upside Down

    I Had No Idea...

    that it was unusual to be able to read upside down. I can also read backwards, and write upside down and backwards as well. It takes a little concentration to write upside down and it's a bit sloppy but it's legible. I discovered that it's unusual by accident just a few years...

    我曾以为,自闭症是由于,成年人,的无知。然而,好像,并不很愚蠢的成年人,总与自闭症患者相处,并一再努力(显然没有收效),也很容易变得精神紧张,那是摧残人的。

    Good Deed

    I can actually read better upside down than any other way. No idea why, it sort of scarily comes naturally to me. But I'm probably so fantastic, that it was decided for me to be able to read better upside down. It also means someone else can read it at the same time as me. So I'm...

    Can't Everybody?

    I can read upside down, mirrored, backward. I can write mirrored.  I assume that everybody can do this.  This forum seems to indicate that this is not so.What is the truth of this?

    Some Kids Can Only Read Upside Down - In The Beginning Anyway...

    I'm a first grade teacher and I've discovered something very interesting. I've found that the kids that seem to struggle the most with learning how to read, not only do much better when they read and write upside down, but it helps them to transition to "conventional" reading...

    Can't Everyone?

    I didn't know this was a special skill or anything... it's most likely not! =p Sure, I can read upside down, not that I make a habit of it! But when I saw this group logo, I laughed like a fiend and had to join this group! Apparently, my eyeballs are upside down! XD

    One of My Special Skills!

    Dyslexic Youngsters May Have To Read Upside Down Before They Can "turn It over"

    It seems that, for some kids, reading upside down is the only way they can make sense of print. They also are able to write that way, too!  The interesting thing is, that when encouraged to read and write upside down, they will usually "turn it over" within a month and be able...

    From An Early Age

    I have found the ability to read upside down has been a very handy thing to have.  It has paid off in business dealings a number of times.  Sometimes you need a little extra advantage in business.

    I'm Not Sure Why So Many People, Aparantly, Can't

    I think the fact i can read backwards is a little more impressive, and also I can read inverted or reflected words. Backwards is easier than inverted though

    Teacher Skills

    I can even read really messy handwriting upside down. It comes in handy a lot as a teacher. I'm not sure if my dyslexia helps my ability with this or not, but I do seem to have a knack for it most people don't.

    Upside Down And Also Backwards

    sometimes it pays to be in my right mind (even if that makes me seem psycho)just one of the many benefits of being a predominately left handed person. (Sure, I can write with my right hand but I'd rather complain about the location of the left handed desks. It makes me feel...
