Are PDA people more likely to be left-handed?
  • I was just wondering, as it seems like PDA people use more of their right brain. Even though I'm right handed, I can write fairly decent(albeit slowly) with my left hand. Are any of your children left-handed? Left-Handedness is correlated with developmental challenges.

    Olivia can not write but seems to be prodominantly right handed....until she tries to kick a ball then she uses her left foot!

    My son favours his right hand but has always been prone to use either.

  • Hi, I am left handed (I do not have PDA) but play raquet sports (badly) with my right hand, and hold my cutlery right handed too. My PDA son is right handed but his handwriting is really bad as he has low muscle tone, as does my other son who is being assessed for ASD at present. He appears to be another right handed fellow but I have seen him swop hands.
    I thought I read somewhere that people with ASD's can be ambidextrous, but I may be wrong or mixing it up with another condition......

    My son is predominantly left handed - so is his Dad, but he can write with his right. The problem of course is not that he cannot but that he will not. His support at school currently scribes most of his work for him! :roll:
