Service description:
The Dyspraxia Foundation is a countrywide charity that provides support through a helpline (01462 454986) and by publishing a range of leaflets, booklets, and books.

The foundation seeks to increase understanding of dyspraxia (particularly among professionals in health and education settings) and encourages its network of local support groups to do the same.

Dyspraxia, a form of developmental coordination disorder (DCD) is a common disorder affecting fine and/or gross motor coordination in both children and adults. It may also affect speech. DCD is a lifelong condition formally recognised by international organisations including the World Health Organisation (WHO).

While DCD is often regarded as an umbrella term to cover motor coordination difficulties, dyspraxia refers to those people who have additional problems with planning, organising, and carrying out movements in the right order in everyday situations. Dyspraxia can also affect articulation and speech, perception and thoughts.
