His occupational therapist was the first one to say it out loud-- Matthew seems to be left handed. My response-- of course he is. It is the path less taken (with about 10% of the population left handed), and that is the path Matthew seems to prefer. So, since we'll have to buy him new scissors anyway, I thought I would just buy him the pair that you can use with your fingers and palm (spring loaded, so no thumb required). That should make that particular task a little less difficult for him.
