Dyspraxia is a common condition that affects movement and co-ordination.  It is also known as Developmental Co-ordination Disorder or DCD.   Coordination difficulties are the main feature of dyspraxia/DCD, affecting large (gross motor) and small (fine motor) body movements. Children with dyspraxia/DCD can also experience difficulties with organisation, planning, attention, memory and processing speed. Some have difficulties with speech and language.


The Dyspraxia Foundation website provides useful information to help identify the signs of Dyspraxia in infants, pre-school and primary aged children, and teenagers.
