Dyspraxia is a “hidden” disability and this makes it complex to recognise, understand and manage. It is also very common (5% of all children) and for these two reasons it is essential all professionals working with children receive training in dyspraxia. We not only deliver very practical training but we recognise the need for professionals to be able to access on going support and we offer this through our help line and other services.
