That's what you get for having the non-verbal intelligence of a brain dead gnat and motor skills that suck big time . It's going to have to ...

Re: Will Britain be able to make a sucess of Brexit?

I voted remain. I think though we have to respect the democratic will of the people as to the result. The only exception would be if enough leave voters publicly announced through a government petition that they had changed their minds. Absent that it's about getting the best deal possible , which s...

On quite a few occasions I...

Ring pulls

Last week I threw away a ring pull tin of scallops because after being unable to pull the ring pull back I resorted in vain to trying to open it with a kitchen knife. That lead me to looking for a gadget to help. https://www.completecareshop.co.uk/kitchen-aids/bottle-and-jar-openers/bottle-multi-ope...

Re: What do you think about getting charged for assessments?

It's not perfect for the younger generation re diagnosis but it's certainly better than when I was a child/teenager over 43 years ago. I have letters from my prep school headmaster to my public school headmaster mentioning poor coordination , also poor at drawing and writing, and public school repor...

Re: Average IQ of Dyspraxics

There's nothing that gives anything precise like 100-110. What is said is that dyspraxics tend to have average to above average intelligence.

At what age did you learn to swim , or can't you swim?

At what age did you learn to swim , or can't you swim? Although described as poorly coordinated I first learnt to swim at the beach at Pataya when I was 6. I mainly swim slow breaststroke only, very occasionally doing front crawl. I swim with my head above water. I don't like swimming underwater.
