Abstract : The aim of the paper is the study of the relationship between the lateral dominance of the upper and lower members and the development of the written language in children aged of 9 to 11. A lateral dominance index was established through carrying out of a series of orders in 65 children. The level of language development was measured by three verbal tests, reading and spelling. An existing of direct relationship between the lateral dominance of members and the written language is not a priori to decern. Only less defined or crossed laterality between hands and feet would correspond to a poor state of language development. (Author)
