Frequently Asked Questions



What is Mirror Reading?

Mirror Reading is the ability to decode text that is presented in mirror-reverse. Mirror Reading requires skills that are different from ordinary reading - for example, mental rotation and spatial transformation.



I can Mirror Write - is it the same as Mirror Reading?

Mirror Writing is the ability to write in reversed text. Many of us mirrored our letters as we learned  how to write. Researchers today recognize that doing so is very normal. Sometimes people may inadvertently begin mirror writing after a brain injury, however, it is not generally considered a disability. It might be a valuable perceptual and language-production skill - check out YouTube videos of people mirror writing with both hands!




If I practice Mirror Reading, what will happen?

Researchers around the world are exploring Mirror Reading as a complex cognitive skill set. Mirror reading practice promotes grey-matter growth in right-brain regions associated with mental rotation and spatial transformation. Mirror Reading practice is also linked to working memory and procedural memory increases. Now, the race is on to investigate the full benefits of this intriguing ability.
