Dyspraxia (dis-prak-see-ya). Some of you may know about it, some of you may have heard of it, and some of you may want to know about it! Those who have followed our blog for some time would have seen the great post about Praxis, and know that it is not just about motor planning. Praxis and Dyspraxia are tricky things to explain and understand, even for therapists! I saw the below image from the Pediatric Occupational Therapy Services website (www.potsot.com/) and thought it gave a simple visual description of Dyspraxia, as well as provide some simple ‘Tips for Dyspraxia’.
