Are beliefs about handedness changing ?

Whether you are right- or left-handed, you may have one or more symptoms ranging from bearable to incapacitating.

Could this be linked to your dynamic-vision dominance, which you use mainly to read up close?

Have you tested your dynamic-vision dominance?

How would you answer the following questions?

  • Do you enjoy reading?
  • Is your reading difficult, slow, broken up?
  • Do you stumble over the words?
  • Do you read sentences 2 or 3 times to understand them?
  • Do you experience ophtalmic pains?
  • Headaches or pain across your forehead?
  • Difficult, tense or poor concentration that doesn’t last (so that you stop reading after 2 pages, for example)?
  • Difficulties in understanding, memorising or restituting?
  • Do you suffer from dyslexia, dyscalculia, visual-spatial dyspraxia, “dys- something”...?
  • Do you have speech difficulties or stutter?
  • Do you have back pains, a scoliosis?
  • Wrist pains (due to being left-handed / wrist twisted into a “swan’s neck”)?
  • Do you have a poor sense of direction in space / in time?
  • Struggle to make choices or decisions and implement them (procrastination)?
  • Experience a block in the flow of of your life?
  • Contrariness?
  • Are you hypersensitive, shy...?
  • Depressed, or prone to depression?
  • Hyperactive, precocious?

All these questions may point to the need for you to have your leading eye for dynamic vision (the one that moves in a specific direction) identified. Whenever you read or write, your leading eye is solicited: in a left-to-right direction in the West, and in a right-to-left direction in the East.

Typically, specialists test your dominant eye with a hole in a sheet of paper, a pen placed vertically in front of you, a telescope, etc. This is usually for long-distance, vertical and static or centred vision.

It does not reveal which of your eyes is the leading one, the active, dynamic one used for reading up close. Because your dominant eye may not be your leading eye. It does not enable the identification of any possible link with the symptoms listed above.

Hence, laterapedagogy / lateratherapy offers:

• a thorough diagnosis of your laterality, visual and dynamic in particular so as to identify your leading eye;
• depending on the diagnosis, tools and strategies to rehabilitate your original laterality (mainly manual and visual);
• finally, adaptation tools and strategies: to the left-to-right reading and writing system in the West; to the right-to-left reading and writing system in the East;
• therapy support according to the impacts on your individuation process, your identity, self-esteem and self-confidence.

Because the method’s aim is to try and reduce, and even remove, the incapacitating symptoms, optimise your cognitive and conative capacities, retrieve a physical and mental coherence and a mental and emotional balance.
