Welcome to Dyspraxia Education!
We are a charity with a big heart for children and young people affected by dyspraxia, also known as DCD (Developmental Co-ordination Disorder).
GIVING THESE CHILDREN A VOICE…
Dyspraxia, also called Developmental Co-ordination Disorder is a complex “hidden” condition which impacts a child’s whole life from learning, playing, sleeping, socialising and the difficulties usually continue into adult life. Despite being incredibly common with between 1-3 children in every class affected most of these children are missed.
Without training it’s difficult for teachers and other key professionals to identify when a child is affected and know what to do. Consequently many of these children go unsupported and suffer in silence.
Both parents/carers and teachers often feel at a loss as to how to help and support these children and young people.
