CPD Training for all PE and Sport Staff

Dyspraxia /DCD is a complex motor coordination condition which affects 5 % of the population. Sadly it is frequently not identified and these children will face difficulties all their lives. Many will have had bad experiences with PE at school and grow into adults with an aversion to exercise and sport. Paradoxically, it is the PE teacher who is best placed to identify this condition in a child and it is exercise which will benefit these children the most. Therefore, it is essential that all PE staff are trained to recognise dyspraxia, know who to refer to for help and how to engage these children in exercise.
