In addition to informing those affected and preventing conversion, it is of utmost importance at an early stage to warn parents against the dangers of converting a left-handed child (first when the child is 18 months old and again at the age of about 41/2). An information flier handed out to parents could help the family doctor to take effective precautions and pass on useful hints and tips in time.
