Ambidextrous Children Run Risk

British-Swedish research has found that children who don’t show a hand preference are more likely to perform poorly in school.

Published in the journal “Pediatrics”, the study included almost 8000 children, of which around 1 percent were ambidextrous.

It also found that they were more likely to show signs of psychiatric disturbance and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) at the ages of 8 and 16.
