Resources for dyspraxia

Postby flat_ted » Wed Oct 25, 2017 9:06 pm

I'm trying to find some resources to help me understand and adjust to my dyspraxia diagnosis (I only got diagnosed as an adult). I've noticed that a lot of the resources available are for children and for adults supporting children with dyspraxia. Can anyone recommend any good books or other resources to help/offer advice with strategies for managing some of the symptoms of dyspraxia as an adult? Thank you :)

Hi again

This does seem to be the case. However, there have been a couple of books from/sponsored by the Dyspraxia Foundation (DF): Dyspraxia Dyspraxic Adults Surviving in a non-Dyspraxic World by Janet Taylor and Mary Morris; and Living With Dyspraxia by (the late) Mary Colley; Caged in Chaos by Victoria Biggs is the only one I've read personally and whilst I found it good. I found it 20yrs too late.
The DF periodically run workshops at various locations around the country and I'm aware that some of these have been attended by people from this forum. There are also blogs and You Tube Channels check out viewforum.php?f=7

With a foot full of bullets I tried to run faster but I just hobbled on to the next disaster.
