The Independent Online
About 10 per cent of the school population is believed to be left- handed. They can encounter problems at school, because they often have needs that are difficult to meet.

Diane Paul, an author of books on left-handedness, is offering workshops and lectures on their needs to teachers, teacher trainers and professionals working with special-needs children. Nearly one in three special-needs children is left-handed or ambiguous in the use of his or her hands.

Prices start at pounds 50 for a 30-minute illustrated talk, at which right- handers can get to grips with the problems faced by left-handers. Bookings through Anne Gregory at the Centre for Left-handed Studies (0161 445 0159).
