I am an Introvert, but try really hard with social situations, which Dyspraxia can make challenging.

Re: Obstacles and challenges faced when visiting the Dentist

As a Dyspraxic, I do have difficulty with having teeth scaled and polished, as having a lot of water in my mouth seems to cause me to "choke" quite a few times each time I go to the dentist. Brushing teeth can also be more difficult for Dyspraxics, due to difficulties with hand-eye coordin...

Re: Can video games help Dyspraxic difficulties?

I am considering studying this subject as part of my university course, where I have to write a research paper, and found this article from 2013 that suggests the wii fit can indeed help with dyspraxia. http://www.techandinnovationdaily.com/2013/06/06/nintendo-wii-fit-for-dyspraxia/ When I was young...

Re: Very fussy eater

I've mentioned before that I have a lot of difficulties chewing different textures, it might be a problem a lot of dyspraxics have. I used to choke a lot on apples and pears, and also had difficulty with the texture of long spaghetti, but no problem with small pieces of pasta.

Re: Talking...

I attended speech therapy when I was younger, and learnt most of the different sounds, but never learnt how to pronounce "f" and "th" differently, pronouncing them both as the "f" sound.

Re: Social Anxiety

I have social anxiety as well, particularly in very large groups. Looking at this thread it's clearly a problem a lot of dyspraxics have: http://www.dyspraxicadults.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1889 Dyspraxics have difficulty concentrating on individual voices in crowded places, which can ...

Re: Paralympic Swimming

I have difficulties with most parts of dyspraxia, particularly hand eye coordination, organisation and concentration.
Hopefully more countries will start to recognise dyspraxia in the future.

Re: TV: Doctor Who new series **may contain spoilers**

Is anyone watching Doctor Who this year? Peter Capaldi is very different to the previous doctors, but it will be interesting to see where this series goes!

Re: escalters

I have a lot of difficulty with "down" escalators as well, although I'm fine with "up" escalators. Do you reckon this is a common difficulty for dyspraxics, having to coordinate putting one foot onto a moving platform, then take the other foot off the ground to place it on the es...

A few questions to try and get a discussion going:

Does anyone on this thread have any pets?
What hobbies do people have?
If you could live in any time period what would it be?
