The Left-Handed Child in a Right-Handed World.
Hackney, Clinton S.
This concise pamphlet describes methods of determining hand dominance in children. The pamphlet states that the child should be observed in certain procedures without being told that he or she is being tested. Among the test procedures suggested are activities with a hand puppet, hammering nails, and throwing a ball. The pamphlet offers directions for positioning the hand and the paper for left-handed writers for both manuscript and cursive writing. The pamphlet also discusses special problems of left-handed writers, such as reversals, and gives suggestions for solutions. (CR)
