Handedness lefty/righty?

Postby madyiero » Sat Jan 21, 2012 6:33 am

I am a person with cp on my left side, i was diagnosed when i was 10 months old, i got therepy very soon. when i was old enough to start using my hands (scissors, toys,ect) my first instinct was to use my left hand. it took awhile for me to use my right hand and my therapists thought i was meant to be left handed but the cp is on my left side. i now use electronic assistance in school because i have a hard time writing with my right hand (its messy and i cant hold a pencil for long because it hurts) i was just wondering if anything like this has happened to anyone else.
