Re: Discord voice chat channel for dyspraxics to practise conversational skills

Hi
In this case I believe it is more to do with building confidence in speaking to other people in general by speaking to others on the chat channel via a microphone on your computer (or headset if you have one)

Some people do have speech difficulties.

Re: Dysphraxia new person

Janie The Dyspraxia Foundation in the UK recognise that obtaining a diagnosis even on the NHS can be tricky and that input of opinion from a neurologist, educational psychologist, occupational therapist and perhaps other medical professionals would all contribute in any path to confirmation. No harm...

I get absolutely incensed when people like 'Robert' post links advertising advertising URLs for essay writing services.

Re: Dysphraxia new person

Hi and welcome. Dyspraxia aka DCD is first and foremost considered to be a developmental condition i.e you grow up with the condition. However, there is some level of acceptance that it can occur as a result of injury or other physiological event. I suspect this is possibly why they are dismissing D...

Re: Do you become less dyspraxic the older you get?

I think you get better at coping strategies and caring less about what others think.
Equally significant change for which we’re unprepared can cause us.signigicant pain and land us back at square one again.

Re: Why are people so mean

Sadly people are often very cynical and can and will make on the spot judgements. Whilst your intentions are to hang out with your friends from college (who just happen to be younger and female). Sadly far too many will generally view a 25yr old guy hanging out with younger females as due to his hav...

Re: If a formal diagnosis cannot be made...

Sorry for late reply.I agree it is best to look for help and therapy for the related difficulties rather than to try to seek specific assistance for dyspraxia. It's hard not to constantly here cruel taunts and they tend to weigh on the mind and erode our self esteem. It's a shame some people are so ...

Re: DORE PROGRAMME - thinking again

Andrew I think she had a lot of hope invested in it for her son so was quite understandably a bit miffed when we all pretty much unanimously informed her that DORE was considered by most, to be at best, a waste of money. I did find this: http://deevybee.blogspot.com/2017/07/the-step-physical-literac...

I definitely do this myself too. I think in this modern age there is a lot of choice and demands on our time and we would maybe do well to try to take things at an easier pace sometimes.

Re: Can Dyspraxia affect one part of the body more than the rest?

Your GP probably needs to refer you to a musculoskeletal specialist as whilst hand movements arecontrolled by your brain your problems with your hand are not exactly something a neurologist would or could specifically address.
