Your Left-Handed Child bookOur own Lauren Milsom was approached as a leading authority on handedness and commissioned by international publisher Hamlyn to write a detailed guide to life as a left-handed child and  giving advice to parents and teachers. The result was the book  “Your Left-Handed Child”.

Essential reading for any parent or teacher of a left-handed child, this book is a practical and comprehensive guide to the challenges your left-handed child may encounter from their first years right through school life and beyond. From basic skills like dressing and handwriting, to learning new sports and musical instruments, this beautifully illustrated book explains common problems caused by right handed bias in equipment and layout and offers ways to help your child harness their natural creativity and problem-solving skills to become adaptable and confident in a right-handed world.

The 128 page book is normally £9.95 for the download version but we are going to send you all of the chapters free of charge by email over the next few weeks!
