Re: Acquired dyspraxia

Tim I was also usually one of the last to be picked for team games too but If they’d needed a quiz team . . . Actually I was a fish out of water with some of the questions at quiz I went to last night. I suspect after ruling out CP and other potential causes all Great Ormond St Drs might have had le...

Re: Will Britain be able to make a sucess of Brexit?

I feel we still need to be in tent pissing out (or working with our Continental neighbours) than outside trying to **** in (or off) these neighbours. The EU certainly has its flaws but it all smacks of storming off and trying to take the ball. There was so much disinformation. Anywhere else online,I...

Re: Acquired dyspraxia

Who was the person and what were their qualifications and reasoning for suggesting acquired dyspraxia? In theory effects indicative of 'acquired dyspraxia' might also be borne of any illness or trauma that interferes with brain functioning/nervous system functioning though in many cases it might tha...

Re: Employee of the Month.

'Lazy' is your impression and whilst that may be fair assessment maybe she is completely demoralised and views role in a similar way to yourself and or has other difficulties outside of work? Assuming you have concluded that threatening to resign or just quitting is unlikely to result in any positiv...

Re: Dyspraxia and Counter Empathy

EDITED. It is reminding me of experiences with several UK medical NHS practitioners, including at consultant level who lacked compassion or empathy. I realised, I probably had DCD/Dyspraxia interchangeably, when I was 50 in 1999 and had it confirmed by a non medically trained chartered psychologist...

Re: Employee of the Month.

Sounds like she is more 'sick of the job' than yourself. Have you asked management what can be done to alleviate pressure on yourself or are you just expected to get on with cleaning duties with no specific direction or thank you for the additional effort you're clearly having to put in?

Re: Will Britain be able to make a sucess of Brexit?

While I thought we should have remained, our voice on the international stage still counts.

However, are certain politicians too isolationist in their foreign policy ideas?

There is no legal requirement to declare. But of course you can get into the politics of is Dyspraxia a disability (yes it certainly is/can be; it meets criteria of being long term and can and often does have an impact on being able to perform normal day to day activities.

Re: About myself

Hi Ryan and welcome Agree it's a a puzzle to explain to people and we're all affected and cope to varying degrees. I sometimes like to characterise my dyspraxia as a pesky mischievious little goblin. Most of the time I manage to defy and outwit him with good humour,. Other times the little blighter ...

Re: Lexxic

Hi again I do agree those are legitimate concerns as I too like (or even expect) things to be thorough to the nth degree. No reason why you can't have a check list of things/examples you want to tell the assessor about re typical bad days and what typically causes things to breakdown and how often. ...
