Handedness

These questions will help us determine whether your child is right-handed, left-handed, or uses both hands equally well. For each action listed below, please tell us if your child usually uses their right hand, left hand, or if they use both hands the same amount (click no preference). Sometimes a child will use one hand most of the time, but sometimes use the other. For example, Ethan is a 6-year-old boy who normally uses his right hand to throw a ball, but sometimes uses his left. In this case, Ethan’s parent would check the Right button and then check the box below to indicate that, yes, Ethan sometimes uses his left hand to throw a ball.
