«Assessing handedness in pre-schoolers: Construction and initial validation of a hand preference test for 4-6-year-olds URSULA KASTNER-KOLLER1, PIA ...»

Papousek & Schulter, 1999). The importance of consistency is best shown when it comes to the ambidextrous: consistently ambidextrous children may use different hands when performing different tasks, but they have a clear preference when it comes to which hand they use for a particular activity. Those who are inconsistently ambidextrous neither have a clear preference in the case of specific tasks nor in general, leading to unfavorable overall development.

This connection between hand preference and hand consistency with pre-school development needs to be tested for clinical relevance, e.g. in children with developmental problems; a detailed analysis of lateral preference in this age group is crucial.
