Name: Joe Ruane
Age: 23
Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Leeds, west Yorkshire
Campaign: To improve understanding of dyspraxia

I made the film with Fixers to improve understanding of dyspraxia. 

 

It affects my motor and communication skills, but it can come across as clumsy to people who don't know about the condition. 

 

Looking back through my life I realised it had affected me the most at school, so my film focuses on that. 

 

I wasn't very good at PE and struggled getting ready for those lessons. Keeping up in class could also be a struggle for me. 

 

I hope to share the film in schools - I hope that teachers will see it so they can help students who have symptoms of dyspraxia and I hope it will help young people with the condition as well.

 

I want to show that despite the negatives of having dyspraxia, there are many positives of having the condition.

 

I know that myself and many other people with dyspraxia can excel in life with just a little help and accommodation. 

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix: 

 

Lauren McGain

Emily Ball

Megan Clark

Ilana Pearce
