What is dyspraxia?
Dyspraxia is a “loose” diagnosis that combines a co-ordination of movement type disorder with attention, anxiety and memory problems. Developmental coordination disorder (DCD), is the formally recognised diagnosis, a developmental condition in which a person’s gross and fine motor skills are affected. Often the terms are used interchangeably.
So dyspraxia a.k.a DCD results in difficulties with the organisation, planning and execution of physical movements required to carry out daily activities.
