Workshops for Driving Instructors.
Many Driving Instructors are reporting that an increasing number of the young people they are teaching to drive have difficulties with coordination. With between 5 -7 % of the population having dyspraxia/DCD (Developmental Coordination Disorder) this is not surprising. Young people with dyspraxia will find learning to drive extremely challenging. Their success is highly dependent on their instructor having an understanding of their condition. Our workshop is specifically for Driving Instructors and will equip you with the confidence, knowledge and understanding to guide your learner drivers through mastering this challenging task.
