Biggest problem from dyspraxia?

Dyspraxia seems a varied thing, and seems to affect different people in a range or ways to varying extents, so I'd be interested to know what you see as the biggest problem you encounter from the effects of your dyspraxia.

I've often overheard conversations at the DANDA socials about getting assessed, although the people there could of course be looking for assessment of all manner of disorders. It's sounded as if a number have had to go private to get assessed. I've heard figures such as £150 been mentioned for asse...

That's a reasonable point. The domain was chosen based in part as it was a logical follow on from dyspraxic teens and it also clearly demarked the intended userbase for both, and is also (I hope) nice and easy to remember, carrying on the pattern of org.uk domains that DANDA and DT uses.

I think one of the most important things if for your driving instructor to understand the areas you find difficult, so they go at the pace you're suited to. It varies from person to person of course, but many dyspraxics seem to need lots of lessons and a good few attempts at the test. Good luck! Let...
