Re: Panel Interviews

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. An employer should not dis...

Re: About myself

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. ...

Re: Exhausted from work

Hi Carl and welcome

Should have responded sooner.

I often wonder/6 feels it's down to having to put in more physical and often mental effort too.

Telling your GP may be appropriate but will leave you to decide if that is appropriate.

Worth asking who Dyslexia Assessing Org is as most should be able to say well you have very few indicators for Dyslexia but we think you have Dyspraxia. Ask who they will use and whether they can assess give help/advice and assess for other Neurodivergent conditions.

Re: Panel Interviews

Not at all. I hate interviews too! Are they competance based?

Do you have stock examples you can bring up in answes about how you overcome difficulty. How you approach and think differently but still get to desired outcomes?

I've had two failed attempts at promotion interviews this year.

Re: Greetings

Hi Gavin Wd def say looking into dyspraxia would be worthwhile. Unfortunately getting formal diagnosis as an adult can be difficult as provision is patchy and your GP may struggle to find somewhere to refer you to but theoretically speaking a Neurologist may be best first part of call. Will try to a...

Re: Views of and experiences with the Dyspraxia Foundation

Hi Lucy and welcome. That's a very valid point. We're a diverse bunch so anything anyone tries to produce as guidance can be very subjective and was probably written to be non specific. I don't think they mean or intend to be patronising and perhaps we have to remember that.we can all be a bit prone...
