Free online learning support available from Dyspraxia Education
Charity Dyspraxia Education is offering parents and teachers free online resources to support children and young people affected by Dyspraxia with their learning and wellbeing in lockdown.
Often termed “the hidden disability” dyspraxia or DCD is a complex condition impacting many areas of a child’s life, not only their co-ordination. Approximately two children in every class of thirty are affected and yet, this condition remains poorly understood.
The online course is designed to help teachers support children and young people with dyspraxia to access their learning. The first module of the course covers topics from: What is Dyspraxia / DCD to What can I do to help?
Cathy Parvin, Director at Dyspraxia Education, based in Herefordshire, says: “We’re pleased to be able to support children and young people with dyspraxia along with their families and teachers. We have a superb resource, packed full of practical ways teachers and parents can help these children access their learning both at home and in school and offering the first module free to help in this difficult time. We urge you to share the details with everyone who might benefit from using it, thank you.”
