Left-handers Education Forum and Training
International Network

We are a global interest group formed in 2021 with the aim to improve the information and education available to the educators of left-handed children around the world.  

We plan to achieve this through:

  • Surveys of schools and other education institutions to understand the current opportunities and obstacles in educating left-handed children
  • Creating a voice for the development of education policies around the world that will assist left-handed children and their learning
  • Developing and promoting resources to assist tertiary educators and their students’ develop classroom skills for teaching left-handed children
  • Ensuring appropriate left-handed methods and tools are available to every left-handed child around the world
  • Exploring research into handedness in the education setting
  • Promoting news items in the left-handed world

Well over 10% of the world’s children are left-handed. We must ensure they are not disadvantaged in their education and life skills development because their teacher didn’t understand.


We created The Left-Hander’s Charter to acknowledge the past but to set our ideals for the future, where left-handedness is accepted and supported around the world and without any additional effort.  The Charter forms the basis of where we want the education of our children to become the start of a global movement of change.  A natural human trait such as handedness needs to be accepted as nothing more and nothing less than that: natural.
