Re: I messed up at work

Actually a mere 4,200 You'd need to miss 420 to amount to 42,000. It's monotonous and I know I would struggle with that too. Did you have a clicker counter or some other mechanism to keep count?

Re: I messed up at work

Hi again Are the baskets coming along a conveyor and do you scan them as they come past or are you scanning stacks of them in a store room? Of the 42 you missed how many did you successfully scan? What instruction did you receive before starting this work and was it adequate for you? In an unfamilia...

Re: Does anybody relate?

Hi again Sion Recognition and understanding regrettably still have a long way to go. Added to that it's a difficult thing to explain and trying to explain ourselves is typically something it seems to affect. It's difficult to have confidence in ourselves and project this, explaining to others that w...

Re: Covid 19. Updated

Hi Beth Welcome. Glad you've found us. A fair few parents do become aware when their son's/daughter's dyspraxia comes to light. I agree, the usual panicked rush of life as it was, seems to have v much abated. Now supermarkeys have guards and more regulatiom even shopping seems more muted and calm. T...

Re: Diagnosed Today

Hi Lenore and welcome

You'll no doubt have a lot of questions about what it all means. Please feel free to ask whatever you need to.

Hi out there

Hope you're all keeping well, whether you're self isolating or trying to do social distancing.

Re: Problems following directions

Hi Lucy and welcome I think this is one of the biggest issues with dyspraxia in that it makes us feel and look less than competent.

Re: I really hate having this disability
