Dyspraxia Awareness

Wed, 3 May 2017

Dyspraxia Awareness

An estimated five per cent of the population suffer from Dyspraxia, which affects motor coordination and causes other psychological, emotional and social problems.

Dr. Dorothy Armstrong is a mother to two boys who both have dyspraxia and she has been working hard to raise awareness of this 'invisible disability' which is often misunderstood.

Dr. Armstrong and her 16 yr old son, Alan joined us to launch their new Dyspraxia Ireland booklet 'The Next Adventure' to help families with transition from primary to secondary school.

The booklet provides hints and tips as well as useful checklists for children, parents and teachers. It is now available by calling Dyspraxia / DCD Ireland on 01 874 7085 or logging on to www.dyspraxia.ie
