Dyspraxia Update

As I mentioned a few weeks ago I intend to focus more on my own experiences of Dyspraxia and the crossover with Irlen and Dyslexia.   The crossover is an interesting thing, because this obviously makes my experiences of Dyslexia, Dyspraxia or Irlen Syndrome different to somebody who experiences only Dyslexia or say, Dyspraxia and ADHD.

The thing about the crossover is that there is of course less information on how each thing might affect you as an individual.  This also means that I can only speak about the ways in which they effect me specifically.


Just some food for thought at the end of a busy week.
More updates soon and in the meantime read a little below about Dyspraxia and if you haven't already watch the video too!


About Dyspraxia


Dyspraxia is an impairment or immaturity of the organisation of movement and motor co-ordination. Those with dyspraxia are often described as clumsy and may have little sense of direction. Dyspraxia can affect balance control. The broader implications of dyspraxia are that it affects self-organisation, time management and attention span.


Dyspraxia/dysgraphia affect approximately two in every 100 people with males identified four times more than girls. It may accompany dyslexia or another disability, although those with dyspraxia/dysgraphia may also be very capable at reading and writing.
