My mathematical mind is generally happy with the idea that as the primary hand changes, everything about a sign is a mirror reflection.

But I worry about Left and Right. If these are reflected, they point to the right and left!

I have similar thoughts about East and West. 

Are the signs absolutely always reversed for left-handed signers?

Hi Alan,

I am a left hand signer and when it comes to directions it is still the same your dominant hand points towards the direction and you confirm with mouthing the word "Left", while pointing to the left etc. 

hope this helps!
