What is Developmental Dyspraxia?
A neurologically based disorder of praxis or the processes involved in the planning of new or purposeful movement.  This may affect and impair any or all areas of development.  It is inconsistant and may affect each person in different ways at different stages of development.  There may be no obvious cause.  It is a hidden handicap as under normal circumstances children with Dyspraxia may appear no different from their peers.  Diagnosis can only be made by an appropriate professional.

  • problem solving
  • motor execution

Other possible areas of difficulty may include:
