Daughter left then right
My daughter started Grade 1 and is really battling to write/draw. When she grew up, she could not decide whether she was left or right. Now her left hand seems to be the dominant hand.
Her writing is very bad/slow compared to the other children in her class.

Any idea how to rectify this problem or from who can I get professional help. ?

Walmer, the best would be to take her to an occupational therapist for a proper evaluation. She will then tell you whether your daughter just needs to practice more or if there is a problem. Good luck.
