Re: dyspraxia sleeping problem/fears...

You become fearful and dreading when you go to bed because you think the same thing is going to happen to and you always get more of what you focus on.The unconscious mind is monitoring everything you think so when you focus on images of staying awake the unconscious mind takes it as a command and h...

Re: Help with 18 year old son

I think it would have been much easier to get a diagnosis when he was at school and getting a referral to a Child Development Centre in your area.It is a lot harder once you have left school and depending on your Doctor whether they take you seriously or not ,some Doctors are not even sure what Dysp...
