Re: employment rate for dyspraxia

I know the employment rate for asperger syndrome is 15% full time, 6 % part time. I think the employment rate for dyspraxic people is low. I get tired easily. I do not like commuting to London from Surrey. I feel that the support for dyspraxia is poor. It would be interesting to know if dyspraxia l...

Re: Can haz noob

Hi Spoon,

Congrats on graduating to Dyspraxic Adults, as it were. Hope you can arrange some support for work. I'm currently speaking the diversity person at my work to get some assistance in my job. Keep us uptodate with how it goes.

Re: DOES ANY SLEEP A LOT LIKE 14 HOURS

Used to sleep a lot in the past - especially at Uni, but these days I struggle to sleep in. I need my 8 hours but I seldom sleep much longer than this.

Re: Things can work out for dysrpaxics!

Hi David, Welcome to the forum. It's good to hear that things can work out. Sounds like you're taking a good, positive attitude towards everything you come up against, which I know is something I need to keep trying to do. I wouldn't worry too much about finishing as the caseworker, as who knows wha...

Re: Not all the symptoms!

Hi Brad, Welcome to the forum. Dyspraxia manifests itself in different ways with different people and at a whole range of severity, so you don't need to be concerned about not having 100% of listed symptoms in the book, you've just got your own type of dyspraxia! Hope you have some luck with your GP...

Re: Do Gooding Educational Psychologists

The original post clearly comes from a lot of frustration, and I can entirely understand why. I am - at last - in a career that I want to be in, if not quite at the level I'd like. However it's taken no amount of trial and error in jobs that's didn't nearly stretch me enough to get there. Looking ba...

Re: The Wii

We got a Wii fit for Xmas and have been using it regularly. Although I find a number of activities very tough at first - especially the coordination and balance ones - which is a good number - I've started to improve and am getting better with practice. Doing Steps is still the toughy for me, though!

Re: Does this sound familiar?

I can certainly see elements of that in myself, although as I've got used to the traits of dyspraxia I learn to try to keep them in check and prevent things building up so that I snap. However dyspraxia is a variable thing and your other half's dyspraxia may well be more severe than my own. I think ...

Re: Do you drive a manual or automatic car?

I passed in a manual however never felt very confident with the starting and stopping. Following a break from driving I've now bought an automatic to ease getting back into it. May or may not move back to a manual in the future but automatic is doing it for me at present.

Watched Miranda - was entertaining - but it's not overtly about dyspraxia is it?
