Re: What support if any do you receive at work?

There are some good blogs and You Tube channels out there by people including The Two Dyspraxics, Krystal Bella Shaw, DyspraxicMe. Look in our Useful Links area and feel free to add links to any you find or create yourself. There also some Groups on Social Media sites. I’m a member of a couple on Fa...

Re: What do non-dyspraxic people think about the dyspraxic ?

Other people assuming we are somehow less intelligent is frustrating in the extremel especially if one tries to prove otherwise and it all goes wrong.

Re: Anyone had any contact with Occupational Therapy ?

Hi again Jess JobCentre Plus Disability Employment Advisors might be able to advise. You could also contact Access to Work I'm sadly deeply suspicious that some employers might be lulled into believing that paying for assistive tech will cure all ills. I firmly believe that changing attitudes is wha...

Re: Anyone else struggle with job interviews?

I'm not a fan of interviews and suspect I may have one on the horizon for an internal move/promotion. Last one was 10 years ago and I shocked them and myself by asking them why I should accept thir post in preference to another I had also applied for. Of course it always easier if you already have a...

interdental brushes and other medical related moans

Has anyone been told to use interdental brushes by their Dentist but is really finding it nigh impossible. Also have the asthma nurse on my back for my inability to give a consistent breath volume output. Still maybe consultation with Doctor will be fruitful. I think I inherited a bit of a neurotic ...

Re: Tomorrow Is My Last Day At Work, Feeling Anxious

Sadly it’s not uncommon for us to feel like this and I know there’s little I can say to counter how you feel right now. For what it’s worth I think you made the right decision in resigning and I hope there’s a feedback questionnaire or other way to make it known to higher management why you have tak...

Re: Does Anyone Find It Difficult To Restore Equilibrium After Stressfull Events?

Yes in the sense I find I remain stressed in situations where I'm upset or annoyed (as likely with myself) and should really let things go. I tend to often keep r evisiting why things had not gone the way they should have. I get stressed when I lose important things or because other people have caus...

Re: Anyone had any contact with Occupational Therapy ?

Jess Your GP in theory should be able to refer you, privately or via NHS. I was not keen on the extra help I've been offered as I'm fiercely independent and don't want to be seen to be treated differently from my peers and I am deeply mistrustful of the notion that by giving us fancy tech our diffic...

Re: Friendship/relationship advice - Update

I think we're inclined to overthink these things which unfortunately can often put us at odds with others. There are a whole load of unspoken rules and different people interpret these in different ways. Can I ask what you said in the message that then resulted in her blocking you? (completely under...

Re: conversation and speech greatly effecting relationships

Hi again Arch Apologies for delay the in my responding. My understanding is that there is at least some crossover between Dyslexia, and Dyspraxia (and with other cognitive difference conditions too) in terms or organisation of thought, concentration and short term memory.
