This year, we are joining the first ever conference on left-handedness through our association with L.E.F.T.-I.N., the international special interest group that is working to improve the teaching of left-handed children around the world. To learn more about L.E.F.T.-I.N., click here.
The Indaba, a South African word for a discussion or conference, will see interested people come together to share information and experiences of being left-handed and supporting left-handers in education and skills development.
We will be hosting a session on handwriting for left-handers, which will focus on both the specific techniques and how to teach them, so that a left-hander can have clear, legible writing without those difficulties of smudging, problems copying, different letter formation and knocking elbows etc!
Other sessions will look at Human Rights, Sceince, Skills Development and there will be work on initiating a framework for the structured support of education of left-handed children around the world.
You are invited to join us at the first International Conference on Left-Handedness!
Learn about the history, the issues and the ways forward in making the world a better place for left-handers, especially our children.
