Re: Did anyone see the derogatory story about a teacher with Dyspraxia who lost his employment Tribunal

I posted about this on a schizophrenia forum I'm a member of. There's a glossing over of the inaccuracy of the newspaper reporting as though it's no big deal.

Felt such a prat

Felt such a prat. Just had mental health check including BP and weight. Stepped on scales which are only a little off the ground and lost my balance. My granddaughter who was with me had to steady me before I could be weighed.

Re: ASD and dyspraxia- how much are they related?

He's a speech pathologist not an expert on dyspraxia , and therefore maybe less qualified to talk about the subject than any of us who experience this.

ASD and dyspraxia- how much are they related?

This is a question I posed on Quora to see what responses there were. https://www.quora.com/Can-dyspraxia-make-it-difficult-for-you-to-organise-your-thoughts To quote the second person that replied : No. There’s been a lot of BS floating around the Internet to the effect that dyspraxia is a learning...

Re: I have dyspraxia and I struggle with maths

I failed Maths O level first time. I was ok at arithmetic and algebra, but abysmal at geometry. I could never get the hang of trigonometry.

Chopping and peeling

Cooking is one skill I struggle with. From organising myself to buy the ingredients(how the hell to people buy a week's worth of stuff for meals from scratch?) to preparing ie peeling and cutting veg , and following instructions and timings. Granddaughter is getting me to cook a cottage pie tomorrow...

The Just juicy chicken fiasco

Maybe it's just me being quite dyspraxic or maybe because in certain ways I'm thick. Went to do some "Just juicy" chicken in the bags my granddaughter gave me. Try opening one bag it splits. Try another bag it splits. Didn't try the third bag. Ending up pouring the mix into the cooking tray and roll...
