Campaign: To encourage people to be more understanding of dyspraxia

When I was five-years-old I was diagnosed with dyspraxia.

 

Dyspraxia is a common disorder affecting motor coordination in children and adults. 

 

As a young child I was a late developer: late talking, walking, late everything!

 

Dyspraxia impacted on my childhood and my time at school. My co-ordination skills were poor and I struggled with writing, reading, playing sports or musical instruments.

 

My disability meant I felt isolated and would be laughed at at school.

 

Lots of people don’t understand what dyspraxia is or that it’s a disability, so with Fixers I want educate parents and school teachers about the daily struggle those with the condition face.
