I have a little guy in my classroom who seems to have no sense of direction. When doing a Jack Hartmann video that was about Up, Down, side-to-side, even after the video had been presented several times, he would go Down when Jack was doing Up (and pointing up).

Then there's the written work. I will place a paper on his desk in the right direction, he will turn it upside down. I am continually coming by his desk and turning his book in the correct direction -- it's often upside down. (These are picture books.)

This is the first time I have encountered this type of thing in my 3 years of teaching K. Should I refer him to an SIT (Student Intervention Team) for possible referral to SST (Student Study Team), or wait to see if it works itself out?
