Handedness and language are lateralized functions of the brain with an almost linear relationship (Knechet et al., 2000). The relationship between handedness and written expression is not clear. The purpose of this poster is to determine if the degree of handedness (a lateralized fine motor skill) is associated with written language outcomes among second grade students. Handwriting was also observed as a measure of neuromotor functioning (Klein, 2020). Neuromotor functioning may have implications for the speed at which a child can write. A second purpose of this research is to determine if neuromotor skill is associated with transcriptional fluency rates.
