recently diagnosed with Dysprixia

Post by Caasho » Tue Jan 14, 2020 9:08 pm

My name is Caasho and I am 24 years old. I am a student nurse. I have been diagnosed with dyslexia and dyspraxia in November 2019. I struggled most of my life but I did not know why. I am happy finally to know why. when all friends wore trainers I used to avoid it because I could not do the laces. I used to depressed because my friends had beauty handwriting where me, writing caused me so pain physical. I used to feel ashamed of my handwriting. finally, I was told due to dyspraxia I was so relieved.

Hi Caasho and welcome to the site

We seem to get quite a few people who enter healthcare, caring or teaching. Since getting diagnosed are you getting better support and learning coping strategies that work for you?

Hey Caasho

When you can - go to the Job Centre and ask about Access To Work - They will arrange for an assessment and give you advice an maybe set you up with a laptop and some specialist software to help you in your day to day work
