Name: Cameron Farish
Age: 22
Year of the Fix: 2018
Location: Workington, UK
Campaign: To campaign for teachers to have a better understanding of Dyspraxia.

I was diagnosed with Dyspraxia when I was 17.

 

It’s a condition that can make a child appear clumsy or slow to learn. Personally I had trouble with things like tying my shoelaces, riding a bike or catching a ball.

 

Handwriting was incredibly difficult and I think teachers just thought I was being lazy.

 

With Fixers, I’ve created a poster which tells teachers in particular what to look out for. Then they can identify a child who may have Dyspraxia and help them with different teaching methods.

 

It would be great if I could help someone like me get a diagnosis and the help they need.
