Dyspraxia is a lifelong condition affecting gross and fine motor coordination in adults and children. Many may experience difficulties with organisational skills, memory, processing speed and, in some cases, speech.
The Dyspraxia Foundation is committed to making the teaching and medical professions more aware of dyspraxia; and to spread understanding of how those who have the condition can be helped. The Foundation seeks every opportunity to increase understanding of Dyspraxia.
Dyspraxia (also known as developmental coordination disorder - DCD) is a surprisingly common condition affecting movement and coordination in children and adults. It is a hidden condition which is still poorly understood.
Dyspraxia affects all areas of life, making it difficult for people to carry out activities that others take for granted. Signs of dyspraxia/DCD are present from a young age but may not be recognised until a child starts school - or even later in adulthood.
The Dyspraxia Foundation is committed to making the teaching and medical professions more aware of dyspraxia, and to spreading understanding of how those who have the condition can be helped.
