Re: Filling in aplication forms

On application form how do I answer questions such as "Tell us below how we can assist you with further information about the post and any adjustments or arrangements you would like us to consider." and Do you need any reasonable adjustments or arrangements to be made if selected for interview? I a...

I definitely fall into the category of eating too fast. I can virtually inhale a chocolate bar then wonder where it's all gone when all that's left is the wrapper. Trying to make a conscious effort to eat better but when I'm stressed I find myself tucking into any nice sweet things on offer. Scourge...

Re: Can i get sacked for having dyspraxia?

If they do it's worth pursuing the unfair dismissal case. As dyspraxics our persistence and sense of whats right and fair are well developed.

Take your talents elsewhere!

Re: finding an office/management job

Welcome Bloc Party Must say I don't know Belgium too well but your English really does surpass my French/Flemish. It's a cliche but I do know where you're coming from. I'm 37 now, but back when I was 24 I was still looking for a permanent job, I'd done work experience and had some idea of the theory...

Re: want people who understand

Hi Kira Welcome to these forums, It does sound as if you have some dyspraxic traits but don't let yourself be defined by labels. I'm sure you'll get some helpful suggestions here. I'm sorry to hear of the difficulties you've experienced but sadly expect that many on here can attest to stories where ...

Hi Nicky I've read Caged in Chaos and Coping with Dyspraxia, both were good but I still think there needs to be a guide for adult life. I consider this site to be the best resource I've found. Really doubt anyone is fed up with you or your posts so please don't worry. Everyone has different experien...

Re: healthcare

I think it's a bold step which carries a greater deal of risk given the economic situation. I'm not sure what thee healthcare sector is like. How easy is it to find good jobs? Is there any way you can speak to your managers about how they and you could the best out of yourself? Can you continue work...

Re: 45 & only just found out....

Hi Greg Welcome to the forums. I've come to the conclusion that this site is by far the best source of help advice and support there is out there. You've got this far without knowing about dyspraxia I'm afraid there doesn't seem to be a great deal of help out there and getting a official recognition...

Re: college life and socialisation

Hi Amy I think it's all too easy to stress about the whole unwritten rules thing. I know I'm prone to it. Often I think I'm on the outside looking in and it's not a nice feeling but there are many others who share the same feeling. I know it's not easy for you but is there anything you could help ot...

Re: Over complicating tasks

I have similar issues. I'm a perfectionist and not great at prioritising. I also have a tendency to try and take on too much and not let go until something is concluded to my satisfaction. I do like things to be simple but often they aren't and If someone else says thats no longer important without ...

Re: I'm about to quit my job.

Hi Skifflet Glad to hear things went better than expected and at least one manager is on your side. Look at it as a vote of confidence in your favour. and that you are appreciated even though you probably don't appreciate yourself as much as you should. I'm equally uncomfortable with the disability ...

First of all welcome to the Group and I'm really depressed to read about your experience at your jobcentre It was definitely mentioned in the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. Not sure about specific mention in New Equality Act 2010 but my understanding is it is counted as a disability because the...

Not by any means an expert on this having not done any formal target shooting. Can you choose what position you shoot from and/or use a bipod? Also isn't being comfortable in the position you adopt equally important though I guess you may be like me in not being all that good at remaining still for ...
