What is Dyspraxia?

Dyspraxia is type of developmental coordinal disorder (DCD). People with dyspraxia are found to have difficulties with coordination and motor skills, including gross motor and fine motor coordination. Dyspraxia predominately involves physical coordination due to circumstances involving the nervous system. In the United Kingdom, research has shown that almost 10% of the nation’s population has Dyspraxia. Despite the fact that symptoms are shown at an early age, it is common for people with Dyspraxia to be diagnosed after the age of five.
