What is the advantage and disadvantage of child that is left and right-handed at the same time?
Being ambidextous isn't all bad. It can be really useful. A person used to do a lot of things and it made that a lot easier. For lots and lots of tasks it's really useful. Other people have to stop because their hand is getting tired. But for those people who uses both left and right hand they can just use the other hand if the other one is tired. DISADVANTAGE:
Recent evidence even associated being ambidextrous from birth with developmental problems, including reading disability and stuttering. A study of 11-yearolds in England showed that those who are naturally ambidextrous are slightly more prone to academic difficulties than either left- or right-handers. Research in Sweden found ambidextrous children to be at a greater risk for developmental conditions such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. Another study conducted revealed that ambidextrous children and adults both performed worse than left- or right-handers on a range of skills, especially in math, memory retrieval and logical reasoning.
Michael Corballis, professor of cognitive neuroscience and psychology at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, says that the two hemispheres of the brain are not interchangeable, and that they’re used for different processes and tasks. “These asymmetries probably eveolved to allow the two sides of the brain to specialize,” he says. “To attempt to undo or tamper with this efficient setup may invite psychological problems.” He says that its okay to train your nondominant hand to be more efficient, just don’t do it at the expense of your dominant one.
