Dyspraxia is an incredibly common but poorly understood condition. Whilst most teachers have heard of dyspraxia, few have a working knowledge in how to recognise and support the children in their class with dyspraxia/DCD.
10% of children have dyslexia…..most teachers will have had CPD training in dyslexia
1% of children have autistic spectrum disorder…..most teachers will have had CPD training in autism
5% of children have dyspraxia (DCD)..few teachers have received training in dyspraxia
DID YOU KNOW?
EVERY class has between 1 and 3 children with dyspraxia
Most children with dyspraxia/DCD are in mainstream education
50% of children with dyslexia will have dyspraxia too
Children with autism often have dyspraxia
Most of the support strategies are free and take little time but have a big impact for the child
IS YOUR SCHOOL OR ORGANISATION DYSPRAXIA/DCD INCLUSIVE?
With such a high percentage of children with dyspraxia/DCD it is vital that all teaching staff and professionals are trained in dyspraxia.Just a small amount of knowledge can make a world of difference to these children.
Our CPD training will equip busy classroom teachers and other child professionals with the knowledge and confidence to recognise these difficulties and to implement simple, practical and inclusive strategies to support these children.
Our motto is: “Supporting you to support them”
We can tailor make our training to meet CPD needs for any setting or professional organisation working with children or young people. For further information please contact us.
ALL our profit is used to run a free HELPLINE which offers support to teachers, professionals, parents and young people. Our priority is getting it right for the child and this is most effectively achieved by training and supporting the adults in that child’s life.
