These days, left-handedness is more accepted. If your child is naturally left-handed, don’t try to force them into using their right hand. While we know very little about what influences hand preference, we do know that handedness reflects the wiring of the individual brain. Causes of left-handedness Just why one in 10 people favour their left hand is a mystery. A straightforward genetic.

Supporting left-handed children. Between eight and 15 per cent of the world’s population is left-handed, and it is in the early years that children work out which hand they prefer to use.

Positioning the paper correctly for handwriting. The paper position and tilt on the desk, for both right and left-handed writers, can make a big difference to a child’s handwriting experience and comfort and yet it is an element which is often neglected. By positioning and tilting the paper correctly the writing hand stays in one comfortable position on the table and the non-writing hand.
Left-handed and dyslexic It is sometimes said that certain mood disorders and learning difficulties are more common in people who favour their left hand.

Left handed writers should always sit on the left side of desk, tilt their paper so that they write down and towards their body so that they can always see what they are writing. Also, for some reason, left handlers press heavier so a softer lead is required when writing with pencil, so going with a Biro is a much better idea. Hope you get a good result for your son.
