The Problem of Lefthandedness, by Gerda HueckRudolf Steiner College Press
Insights and exercises to consider in working with the challenge of lefthandedness.The problem of lefthandedness confronts parents, kindergarten teachers, class teachers, therapeutic eurythmists and doctors. If the changeover to righthandedness, especially for writing, is to be attempted, then one needs to find an individual solution for each child. Rudolf Steiner gave fundamental indications for 'changing over' at conferences for Waldorf school teachers and at lectures, in which he gave important insights for recognizing qualitative differences between the right and left in the human form and in space. Through the many-sided variety of explanations, the educator is able to learn of the many different levels which are inherent in this problem. Gerda Hueck was a therapeutic eurythmist and teacher in the Stuttgart Training for Therapeutic Eurythmy.
