We have been running a number of different surveys over many years and you can see the details of how to complete the questions yourself or see our results and analysis using the links below.
Teacher training and left-handed children
This is our current project to find out what level of guidance teachers are given with how to help left-handed children with handwriting and other tasks.
We will be producing an initial analysis of the responses to this survey later this year and will provide updates in our Left Handers Club newsletters.
Being left-handed survey
This survey is about which hand left-handers use for various activities, how left-handedness runs in families and how left-handers are affected by their hand preference.
The survey form, results and analysis for this survey are on our Left handers Day site at www.lefthandersday.com
Left handed school experiences survey
There are lots of great things about being left-handed, but it can sometimes be hard trying to learn to do something in a right-handed way or with right-handed tools. Nowadays, many schools are realising that it’s not fair to make us left-handers do things “back to front” and that left-handers deserve to be just as comfortable when they learn. There are lots of really useful left-handed teaching aids and equipment that are now available to schools, but some teachers still aren’t using them! That’s why we’re asking you to fill in this survey to tell us how well your school looks after left-handed pupils.
The survey form, results and analysis for this survey are on our Left Handed Children site at www.lefthandedchildren.org
Left handed life choices survey
We are undertaking the biggest ever survey of left-handedness in various Groups of people to find out what advantages and disadvantages left-handers have and how it affects their choices and success of career, sports, social activities and other lifestyle choices.
