Re: hypermobility?

Yes hypermobility is common for dyspraxics, its not something that soley dyspraxic people have but it is common to have it as well as dyspraxicia.

Re: no direction sense

I would recommend getting a smart phone (for maps etc) or GPS device. I could say to print out maps with directions on it for where you need to get to regularly or get maps of the local area. Yes this could help but like a lot / all of us hear we find it very hard to read maps and follow directions ...

Re: frustrated

Re: Daydreaming at work

I would recommend talking to the HR department about your dyspraxicia and if you have a formal diagnosis then give them a copy of this as well as what adjustments that you think would help you but also are reasonable. For example if your not going to be focusing in the morning then is it possible if...

Re: Undiagnosed & Fed Up Waiting

I don't think dyspraxicia can be outgrown, yes it can be overcome to a certain extent as we use coping strategies even if we know it or not. This can mask some affects of dyspraxicia but it does not mean your not dyspraxic its just a lot better dealt with. - I don't want to make it sound like a nega...
