How Left handed People Write & Teaching Lefties to Write.
Awesome write up from handedness.org titled "Teaching Left-Handers to Write" by M.K. Holder, Ph.D.
Per M.L. Holder, Ph.D.:
"If a left-handed child is only permitted to write with the left hand but not taught how to write, the child may develop a needlessly uncomfortable, inefficient, slow, messy way of writing that will be a lifelong hardship. Therefore, it is especially important for parents and teachers to understand how to teach left-handed children to write correctly. The most important factors are: the position of the writing paper, the position of the arm and wrist, and the grip on the writing instrument."
