The Left-hander's Handbook : How to Succeed in a Right-handed World - For Teachers and Parents of Left-handed Children Spiral bound
by Diane Paul
Most left-handers perform most activities with little difficulty most of the time.
But left-handers are sometimes at a real disadvantage.
For example, handwriting problems can seriously effect the legibility of students' exam papers and, later, with career opportunities.
So left-handed children do need help - and parents and teachers need guidance.
This Handbook defines and explores reasons for different types of left-handedness.
It has a major section on handwriting, with contributions from Dr Jean Alston, Dr Rosemary Sassoon and Prue Wallis Myers, and it gives instructions for crafts and music, sources of equipment and suggestions for projects.
First and foremost, though, throughout the book, the author provides invaluable advisory Guidlines for minimising the practical problems that left-handers inevitably face in a right-handed world.
The Guidelines have been adopted as an educational resource for teachers by the NFER.
The book is an essential resource for anyone responsible for left-handed children. (Robinswood also publishes the Left Hand Writing Skills series which helps young left-handers to develop good handwriting skills, especially if bad writing habits have already begun to set in!)
