Q.

what could it be?

Hi doc. What does it mean if a 6yr old boy draws his pictures sideways on a page. The page is straight, but his house and people drawings are all drawn sideways. Do you think he needs occupational therapy? Thank you.

This could be a sign of some unhappiness in a young child. It has been reported in children of divorced parents. It is sometimes seen in dyslexic children.If you are concerned about your son it may be best to consult a child psychologist about his unusual drawings.
