The Left-Handed Child

What is handedness? Wikipedia gives us a quick definition.

Handedness is an attribute of humans defined by their unequal distribution of fine motor skill between the left and right hands. An individual who is more dexterous with the right hand is called right-handed, and one who is more skilled with the left is said to be left-handed.

If your child is left-handed and you want to know some tips on how to develop his/ her writing skills, here are some websites you can visit.
