Average IQ of Dyspraxics

Post by Dan » Thu Jun 21, 2018 7:09 am

Hey everyone. One thing I've noticed in perusing this forum is that pretty much everybody seems really articulate and clever. I was wondering if this was a trend of note, or if it's just my own biases creeping in to my thought process. I definitely don't consider myself intelligent, just to be clear, but I was curious if anybody knows of any reputable, peer-reviewed studies on this? I find literature on Dyspraxia sparse and lacklustre in general, so this is more of a shot in the dark than anything.

There's nothing that gives anything precise like 100-110. What is said is that dyspraxics tend to have average to above average intelligence. What is said is that verbal IQ tends to be markedly higher than performance IQ.
