What is Dyspraxia?

Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD)is also known as Dyspraxia in the UK. It is common, affecting fine and/or gross motor coordination in children and adults but can also have an impact in a number of areas of a person's life.

If you are an adult who may have DCD/Dyspraxia you may have some challenges in different areas of your life.

Such as:

o Completing forms, particularly when these must be handwritten.

o Producing work legibly and quickly by hand, particularly in timed contexts such as lectures and exams.

o Writing on media such as whiteboards.

o Laboratory work or practical tasks, particularly if these require accuracy and precision, e.g. in science, health care, dentistry, mechanics, engineering.

o Working with tools and machinery, e.g. using a stapler or scissors, working a till.

o Physical tasks involving, for example, balance (e.g. carrying items while walking and manual dexterity – e.g. handwriting).
