Expert help for you and your pre-school child.
Our research suggests that few parents and few teachers are sufficiently conscious of the young left-hander's needs. Consequently, many young left-handers develop awkward writing habits which can cause discomfort, slow and not-very-legible writing. For the child, this can result in frustration, disinterest and a fall in self-esteem. For the teacher, a child with those symptoms indicates the possibility of reduction in achievement.
The Left Hand Writing Skills books published by Robinswood Press have helped tens of thousands of children worldwide aged around 6 years or older and with established poor writing habits to correct their left-handed fine motor skills and improve their achievement. But why do we unnecessarily create this need?
It is difficult to identify with absolute certainty whether a young child is left-handed or not. So, parents and teachers often ignore signs of left-handedness until a problem arises at school. That's where this book fits in.
Designed primarily for parents / grand parents of Early Years and Reception age children, this book helps to check out left-handedness in a fun, family way, and includes 32 drawing and cutting exercises where the natural flow is for a left-hander.
Without creating an 'issue' for the child, the parent can then inform teachers of probable left-handedness. The teacher can then implement the simple yet often ignored guidelines for development of appropriate fine motor skills and avoid the anguish where left and right elbows clash unnecessarily in the classroom!
