Dyspraxia Foundation Cumbria

Dyspraxia, a form of developmental coordination disorder (DCD) is a common disorder affecting fine and/or gross motor coordination, in children and adults. While DCD is often regarded as an umbrella term to cover motor coordination difficulties, Dyspraxia refers to those people who have additional problems planning, organising and carrying out movements in the right order in everyday situations.

Dyspraxia can also affect articulation and speech, perception and thought  

Although Dyspraxia may occur in isolation, it frequently coexists with other conditions such as Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), Dyslexia, language disorders and social, emotional and behavioural impairments.
