    You're a medical student who attends a pediatrics OPD and notice an egositic doctor talking to a mother reassuring her that her son's right-hand preference at the age of 9 months is of no significant issue.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    True. The development of hand preference begins in infancy, with infants developing unilateral manipulation skills—the ability to use one hand—at 7 to 9 months of age. However, it is not until 10 to 11 months that they develop a true consistent hand preference. The majority of the time, hand dominance in children begins to stabilize around 18 months to 2 years of age. Therefore, a right-hand preference at the age of 9 months is not necessarily indicative of the child’s final hand dominance, and it’s not a cause for concern.
