Re: New to this group - hello!

Hi Sky and welcome I fear that you won't get any more support or understanding if you manage to obtain a Dyspraxia diagnosis, though having confirmation/vindication is important in accepting and moving forwards. Whilst people with Dyspraxia do suffer pain from inter-related and cooccurring condition...

Re: Dyspraxia with hydrocephalus

Hi Helen and welcome to our little corner of the web.

I'm not a neurologist, but I believe it entirely possible the effects and/or degree of impairment could present similarly even if the causes of Dyspraxia and how it affects people are not as well known.

Re: Panel Interviews

. . I'm sorry to hear about your promotion interviews; did they provide feedback as to where you could improve? Yes they did and it was helpful as while I was unsuccessful in both cases, they told me there were parts I was getting right. Someone also informed me that I could ask for the questions t...

Re: Looking after a house!

Welcome

I would almost be inclined to say I have OCD leanings in terms of I want things to be just so. I like the idea of order but chaos reigns supreme in my flat.

Re: Drinking and addictive behaviour

After not drinking for ages to having alcohol six days out of seven is going to make you feel like things are suddenly a bit out of control. I guess it is about finding positive alternatives though these can be difficult to find and/or stick to sometimes. Is there anywhere you can go to have human c...

Re: Employee of the Month.

They're probably a bit fed up with you going on about it, but still going in. People tend to not have all that much empathy for others as they don't perceive it in same way or first hand so can make them impatient. I think we care more and as we typically need to focus harder it matters more relativ...

Re: Employee of the Month.

That kind of attitude is hardly going to help them as the best people will think £&#k this and just leave to find jobs elsewhere and the business will either become insolvent or be forced into bankruptcy. Whilst you may think It’s easier to stick with what you know and hope it will blow over, you pr...

Re: Workplace adjustments - recalling numbers/facts

It is encouraging that your employer are on board with trying to find ways to help you do your job. It is always human nature to compare yourself against how well you perceive your colleagues are managing. If they are using same age laptops and having to connect in, they probably have the same frust...

Re: Workplace adjustments - recalling numbers/facts

A 2nd monitor could be one option - you may also need updated graphics card to make it work. Is slowness down to speed of your input or also speed of link that enables you to query details and prices of products customer is seeking to order? Do the the prices change and do they vary based on number ...

Re: Employee of the Month.

One expects they'll come to realise that reporting sick is a right and an exercise in responsibility, not 'a mistake'!

If people come in sick for fear of losing annual bonus, then spread flu or D&V or make serious errors/have an accident at work . . .

Re: Becoming a Mum

Hi again I suspect a lot of non dyspraxic prospective parents have the same worries and you don't say whether you or mot you have a partner or not and how much help and support you will receive from family and friends? Regrettably here are plenty of parents who probably don't care enough about such ...

Re: Help and Advice needed.

Hi there It's what the Forum is here for so of course you can ask. I think you need to consult an employment law expert at the earliest opportunity. If he's a union member or can join, I feel that would be a good idea. as he would benefit if he could have someone with him at any formal meeting(s) be...
