As a parent of a child with dyspraxia I found some of the most useful advice I received came from other parents. These workshops are for parents to understand their child’s condition and to learn simple tips for helping their children. When we understand why our child does the quirky things they do, we are much more able to support them. Being a parent of a child with these difficulties is hard and meeting other parents is often really beneficial.
