Re: Tippy Toe Walking?

I used to do it as a kid up until about the age of 12 when people started taking the **** out of me at school. After that, I tried to learn not to do it, but even today my gait/stance is not really 100% Oh yeah I get constant commentary on it, YES I'm aware I look like an idiot YES I know it's bad ...

Edit: I've just had a look on youtube. I think I'd lose my balance doing that.

Re: Dyspraxia/ADHD Medication & Concentration

I am ADHD with possible dyspraxia (it's basically certain) and I have tried all the pills for adhd possible (currently also on concerta, but haven't taken it in awhile) and all of the make me very sick.

Tippy Toe Walking?

Hi, so all my life (16) I have been known for tippy toe walking and having "duck feet" when I walk. Now that I am more conscious of it I do it less, and it's really only when I'm barefoot where it's extremely prominent, but I still often get pointed out and its quite frustrating because I can't cont...

Re: Is it worth trying? (Color Guard / Dancing)

I decided I wasn't going to continue with it. Unfortunately the new coaches wanted way too many hours a week and it was super pricey this year so unless I REALLY wanted to, I didn't think it was worth it- especially because I'd rather spend that time on a job. Besides those issues we did a lot durin...

You know you’re dyspraxic when you knock over an entire store display, try to help pick it up, and then knock it down again...

@tom, yeah I think contacting the Dyspraxia Foundation USA might be a good idea, I’ll try doing that soon. Thank you!

Can’t be diagnosed?

Hi, Me and my counsler have been talking about how dyspraxia is a strong possibility for me and recommended i looked for someone to diagnose me. My mom (I’m 16) has looked everywhere and the only place she found was an hour away and only diagnosed younger kids. She said she’s tried really hard to fi...

Re: Is it worth trying? (Color Guard / Dancing)

Thank you everyone for your replies; I have a clinic tomorrow for the guard tomorrow and I’ve decided to go, see if I like our new coaches, and basically kind of see how i feel once I toss the flag for the first time in months, if it’s something I enjoy it should feel good to do again, so i suppose ...

Re: Is it worth trying? (Color Guard / Dancing)

Thank you for your reply. I totally understand the competitiveness being frustrating. It's why I quit literally every sport I've tried. People were flat out mean. In guard I find they all try to be as nice as possible but I can tell when me having to ask how to do a toss for the 100th time starts to...

Is it worth trying? (Color Guard / Dancing)

Hi, I have not been officially diagnosed with dyspraxia but me and my therapist have a high suspicion that I do. I am 16 and last year during the school year I participated in Color Guard (basically dancing but more complicated because you're adding in flag spins and tosses along with it) I STRUGGLE...
