Dyspraxia Foundation is upping it's game re. all adult dyspraxics. Yeah!!!

I'm happy to say that I've just a really positive telephone conversation with Sophie Kayani (Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Dyspraxia Foundation) & actually the Dyspraxia Foundation has being putting plans in place to be a lot more representative to all adult dyspraxics & to lobby for change in government circles. They'll be making some important positive announcements very soon. So watch this space......🙂🙂🙂

Welcome and thanks for posting. I want to a talk by another of the Trustees, Richard Todd, last year. I know the DF work tirelessly but it's hard to make an impact as a small charity representing quite a nebulous condition. I think as adults we can feel the DF is a bit child/youth focussed but I think it is essential for people affected to get recognition, help and support early on.

Just hope it snowballs and the ideas are taken forward and acted upon in other countries too.

Great news. Thanks for sharing.

I don't want to get too excited. But any little move in the right direction is welcome.
