Keyboard on smartphone

Anyone else have problems using a keyboard on a smartphone? I don't know whether it's the fact my fingers are fat and the keyboard so small/lack of manual dexterity but I keep pressing wrong keys. Then there is the whole issue of swiping to use the delete button or anything else on the smartphone wh...

Re: General cogitive assessment -Cognifit

I think you have to be careful here as we rarely if ever fit a stereotypical model of what someone with dyspraxia (and /or X other near diverse condition) should be like, can/can't do etc. Maybe your spatial perception is one of the (possibly many) exceptions to the rule, or you have managed to dev...

General cogitive assessment -Cognifit

https://www.cognifit.com/cognitive-assessment/cognitive-test https://www.cognifit.com/science/cognitive-skills/spatial-perception I was surprised at my spatial perception score of 608/800 which is a high score. In reality I have a poor sense of direction. Also I have always been poorly coordinated. ...

Re: How are you at cooking?

Tom. I've got one of those big bags of frozen veg. My issue is cooking the frozen veg and microwave rice together. I don't fancy juggling electric ring,oven and microwave. I would prefer to use the microwave for both rice and veg but not sure how to do them together.

Re: How are you at cooking?

Chopping and peeling veg is a major problem for me. I have those pasta in sauce or microwave rice rather than potatoes. I hardly ever have veg as balancing cooking the frozen veg and the pasta/rice just seems too difficult.

The ice after the snow

How do you cope with the ice that invariably comes after the snow? I had some grips to put on my shoes to stop me falling over but now have new shoes that the grips wouldn't fit. As it is I can't find the grips after I moved anyway . Without grips I find it very hard to keep my balance .

Further to this question. Do you find the more anxious and self conscious you are the worse it is?

Re: Anyone had any contact with Occupational Therapy ?

In a mental health setting-yes, but never for dyspraxia or any other form of neurodivergence . They weren't much help.
